" And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
"And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger."
(from Matthew 2 beginning at verse 1)" Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the King, behold there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, 'Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.' " (Then, I will paraphrase that King Herod was jealous that someone else would be called King of the Jews and he demanded of all of his chief advisers where Christ was supposed to be born and they told him Bethlehem. So he lied to the Wise men and told them to find the baby and then tell him so that he could worship him himself.) "And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also."
"When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east,went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was." (Remember Heavenly Father put a new star in the sky when Jesus was born.)
And that is the true story of Jesus' birth. The children in my class will receive a set of figures that looks like this.
