    I believe that Jesus Christ was born on the Feast of the Trumpets! The first day of Tishri, Rosh Hashana!

    My comment on luke 2:52, If Jesus increased we as well we need to grow in all corners..
  • I wonder why God chose shepherds as the first to know of Jesus. I know it says the shepherds made it known 17 but who do they see out in the pastures day by day?
