The Annunciation Luke 1, verse 30
And the angel said unto her, fear not, Mary, for thou
hast found favor with God.
The Shepherds Luke 2, verses 8-10.
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people."
Journey To Bethlehem Luke 2, verse 1 & verses 3-5.
In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. And everyone went to his own town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.
THE MAGI Matthew 2, verses 9-11.
After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and
the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped
over the place where the child was. When they saw the star they were
overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother
Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their
treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.
The Nativity Luke 2, verses 6-7 & verses 11-14.
The time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in strips of cloth and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to
you; he is Christ the Lord. Suddenly a great company of the
heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory
to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
