What Happened on Jesus’ Birthday?

September 28, 2011

His mother had just finished a very strange pregnancy (Luke 1:30-31, Matthew 1:18)

An angel appeared to his father (Matthew 1:20-21)

The words of Isaiah were fulfilled (Matthew 1:22)

The words of Micah were fulfilled (Matthew 2:6)

Magi traveled 900 miles to see him, worship him, and give him gifts (Matthew 2:1-12)

A star guided the Magi to him (Matthew 2:2, 2:9-10)

He was called King of the Jews (Matthew 2:2)

He became king with a never ending reign (Luke 1:32-33)

He was called the Son of God (Luke 1:35)

He slept in a feeding traugh (Luke 2:7, 2:12)

The glory of the Lord shone around him (Luke 2:9)

He was proclaimed to be a Savior and Messiah (Luke 2:11)

He was praised by the angels (Luke 2:13-14)

The shepherds praised God (Luke 2:20)

Herod despised him (Matthew 2:3, 2:8, 2:13)

Quite a day if you ask me.
