A Baby is Born


Christmas Origins, Reason for Christmas, The Birth of Jesus

2,000 + years ago a baby was born named Jesus Christ. We celebrate this event on December 25th of each year with a Christmas Tree (in which symbolizes the trinity), a star atop the tree (in which symbolized the star that led the 3 kings to the newborn Jesus) and presents – giving to each other and sharing the love of Christmas. Below is an excerpt from the bible, a passage from Luke.

The Birth of Jesus Christ

“And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord”. — Luke 2:1-11
