Discussion for Luke 2

  • A disciple
    "And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds." There has never been a problem with news and information getting out among the people, and all Israel knew what was reported about Jesus coming into the world. We too have been told all things by God.
  • A disciple
    "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." God in His great love and very good purposes has always had in His heart to save man, and to undo what the devil and sin has done to destroy us. Oh that all His works would praise Him!
