And now a little story about the birth of Jesus.
Jesus was born in a barn
Do you know what this little baby is? Yes, it is Jesus. He was just born in this barn. Obour is the place where animals are kept. Mary puts Jesus in the crib – there is the food of the donkeys and other animals. But why are Mary and Joseph here with the animals? This place is not suitable for baby birth, right?
Yes, it was not. But that is why they were there – the ruler of Rome, Emperor Augustus, issued a law that everyone should return to the city where he was born to write his name in a book. And Joseph was born here in Bethlehem. But when he and Mary arrived in Bethlehem, there was no place for them. So they had to come here to the animals. And on that very same day Mary gave birth to Jesus!
Do you see the shepherds who come to see Jesus? They were in the field at night, caring for their sheep, when a bright light shone all around them. It was an angel! The shepherds were very scared. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid! I bring you good news. Today, in Bethlehem, Christ the Lord was born. He will save people! You will find him in diapers in a crèche. “Suddenly many angels came and praised God. The shepherds immediately set out to seek Jesus.
