And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth (John 1:14).

How Well Do We Know the Christmas Story?

Many of us have been reading the Christmas story since we were small children. We've been in or to countless plays at church with children in their bathrobes playing shepherds watching their flocks by night, and Susan's baby doll playing the baby Jesus (it has to be a doll because it was supposed to be a silent night, right?). We've heard the classic sacred carols heralding the Savior's birth.

How well do you really know the Christmas story? Got it down pat? Let's start at the beginning with Mary's cousin Elizabeth and her priest husband Zacharias.

"Behold, I send My messenger, And he will prepare the way before Me."

— Malachai 3:1

Elizabeth and Zacharias - Luke 1

Mary and Joseph

Mary and Joseph both experienced visitations from the angel Gabriel. I don't think we often consider the hardships they went through. Their situation of not being yet married and her conceiving a son was scandalous. We don't read much about the scorn they probably received. But no doubt it was there. And yet they were a most blessed couple.

What do you remember about Mary and Joseph?

The Lord says, “Bethlehem Ephrathah, you are one of the smallest towns in Judah, but out of you I will bring a ruler for Israel, whose family line goes back to ancient times” (Micah 5:2).

Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14).

While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son.

"For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."

— Isaiah 9:6

      Merry Christmas Lori,

      Thanks for some fun on this Christmas Eve. I enjoyed the video as well - and the questions you asked at the end are ones we all need to think about and come in line with.

      As far as the quiz, I started okay, but, well, I missed a few along the way. Still it was fun. Thanks for something different here on HP.
