The shepherds were quietly getting on with their own business when suddenly an angel appeared to them. I'm not surprised they were afraid! The angel's words to them told them of Jesus and his amazing birth and how they could recognise him in a very crowded town. The words of the hosts of angels is very similar to the words sung during a sacrifice service in the temple when there were three blasts of the temple trumpets. This is only the second time in the whole Bible that a group of angels rather than one angel had appeared to people, so this proved that they had a very important message to give to them.


We don't know the names of the angels or how many there were of them, but in the Bible it says that there are millions of angels - so it would have been an amazing experience! If you'd like to know more about angels, go to whychristmas? There's a theory that Jesus might have been born a couple of miles outside of Bethlehem - and was actually born in the company of the shepherds!

A couple of miles outside Bethlehem there was a special watch tower called the Migdal Eder, which means 'The Tower of the Flock'.

It's thought that sheep born there were used as sacrifice animals in the Jewish Temple in near-by Jerusalem. So they were very special an the shepherds were thought of more highly than normal shepherds. According to some sources, the lambs at Migdal Eder had their health checked by resting them in a 'manger' or dip in a rock to stop them escaping and were even wrapped in swaddling clothes to show they were special!

Our little town was filled to overflowing and some had given up even trying to find rooms. Remember, some had to travel several days, all the way from beyond the Galilee up north, to get here. We had just settled down by the fire when suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared to us from out of nowhere.

Even the seasoned veterans were scared. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you. He is Messiah, the Lord! This will be a sign to you. You will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.

Suddenly the star filled sky opened up and a great company of angels appeared with him. A couple of times later in my life I heard the musicians that rich people hired to help them celebrate when their first son was born, but not even the wealthiest King could have afforded a choir like this one.

The Story in the Bible

The music caused us to lift our faces and our hands to the heavens. It filled our ears and our hearts and was by far the most beautiful sound I ever heard in all my life. When they faded away and left us we just stood there for a minute looking at each other, our eyes filled with wonder, tears of joy streaming down the weathered cheeks of my father and his friends. They had heard all the talk about a coming Messiah, but none of them ever expected to see Him. And now, not only would we see Him; we would be the first!

The Christmas Story

Eternity had entered time and the Son of God had become the Son of Man, almost right before our eyes. This had been my first day as a real shepherd, and there would never be another one like it. Mindful of our responsibility, we left a couple of our number to watch the sheep, and the rest of us took off for Bethlehem in search of the sign the angel had told us to look for. And sure enough, in a stable behind the inn at the edge of town, we found them.

In the manger before her was a baby, a normal looking healthy baby boy.
