Christmas Bible Reading Plan - Day 19

Join us for a summary walk through of the events surrounding the birth of Jesus. Journey toward Christmas Day with a renewed vision and appreciation for the life of Jesus Christ. Each day you will find a link to the Bible passage for that day and helpful resources for your study.

December 19. Read Luke 2:8-14.

The men visited here are shepherds in the middle of an otherwise ordinary night guarding sheep (Luke 2:8). Nearby, Mary has just given birth to the Messiah, Jesus (Luke 2:6–7). Why the angel delivers this message, the Bible does not explicitly say. The fact that Jesus' arrival is meant as good news for all mankind, even the poor and lowly, might be highlighted by God's choice to make common shepherds the first on earth to learn what has happened.
