The Birth Of Jesus

From The Gospel Of Luke

The Main Story

The mother and father of Jesus, Mary and Joseph were required to register themselves in a census being held by the Emperor Caesar Augustus. They travelled to Bethlehem in Judea as this was where Joseph had descended from. When Jesus was born Mary wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger. Shepherds heard the great news from an amazing shower of great white light in the sky in the form of angels. They quickly rushed to Bethlehem to see Jesus and were astonished by his humble surroundings.
