Whoa! This is likely a part of the Christmas story you likely have NEVER heard before.

There’s an incredible part of the Christmas story that most have never heard.

We’re all of course familiar with the passage from the second chapter of the New Testament book of Luke wherein shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night are encountered by an angel of the Lord who says, “For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

This baby is later described by John the Baptist, in the first chapter of the gospel of John, as Jesus, “the lamb of God who would take away the sins of the world.”

What if I told you that the manger in which Jesus was born was located in the same place where the lambs were raised to be used as sacrifices for the Jewish people in the mighty Temple in Jerusalem?

In other words, Jesus was born amongst the sacrificial lambs!

    Thank you Brian. This information is something I read or heard some time ago and it is good that you brought it to our attention again. We have a marvelous Christmas story that cannot be denied. While he still sacrificed himself and is also the shepherd He represents both The Son and the Father. I hope and pray that your are better and are having a very wonderful celebration of the dear Saviors birth. Praying for you and your family and looking forward to a New Year. God protect you and bring you back well. Maggie Grantham
