The Birth: The Shepherds’ Story

October 7, 2018 Max Frazier Series: The Thread of Redemption

This is a story that we know so very well.  It has been told from generation to generation for the past two thousand years.  We sing songs about it.  Stories have been written about it.  We have family gatherings because of it.  It is the story of Christmas – the story of the arrival of the Messiah.  In this message we want to share some of the background of the Christmas story – from the halls of the imperial palace in Rome to the manger in Bethlehem.  And just who were these shepherds and why did God’s glorious announcement come to them?  Let’s celebrate Christmas in October.
