The Christmas Story

The Christmas Story
- illustrated by my 7 year olds that I teach at church-

Luke Chapter 2

verse: 4And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is calledaBethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5To be taxed with Mary his aespoused wife, being great with child.

6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7. And she brought forth her afirstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the binn.

8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the aglory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring youagood tidings of great bjoy, which shall be to all people.

11For unto you is aborn this day in the city of David a bSaviour, which is Christ the cLord.

Matthew Chapter 2

1Now when Jesus was aborn in Bethlehem of Judæa in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

2Saying, aWhere is he that is born bKing of the Jews? for we have seen his cstar in the east, and are come to dworship him.


9When 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.

10When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

11¶And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and afrankincense, and myrrh.

Merry Christmas Eve.
I pray that you will be able to sit down with your family tonight and read the Christmas Story from the Bible.
This year all the grandkids will be acting it out. Hopefully I will get some good pictures and videos.
If you don't have time to dust off your bible you can read it HERE

Or you can listen to this Christmas Devotional HERE
