The Christmas Story

“And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.

And all went to be taxed, everyone into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Gaililee out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David which is called Bethlehem; (because he was o fthe house and lineage of David.)

To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child

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

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

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

And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shown round about them and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not, for, behold, I bring you good tiding of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.”

- Luke 2:1-11 KJV
