The Christmas story, as told in the Bible, is the story of the birth of Jesus Christ. It is a story that has been celebrated for centuries by Christians around the world, and is central to the Christian faith.
The story of Jesus’ birth is told in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament of the Bible. According to the Gospels, Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem, in the region of Judea, during the reign of King Herod the Great.
According to the Gospel of Luke, Jesus’ mother, Mary, was a young woman who was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph. While Mary was still a virgin, the angel Gabriel appeared to her and told her that she would give birth to a son, and that he would be the Son of God.
Mary was hesitant at first, but eventually accepted the news and agreed to bear the child. However, when she told Joseph about the pregnancy, he was skeptical and planned to quietly divorce her. But an angel appeared to him in a dream and told him that the child was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and that he should marry Mary and raise the child as his own.
As the time of Jesus’ birth approached, a decree was issued by the Roman Emperor Augustus that all people should be registered in their ancestral towns. Joseph and Mary, who were from the town of Nazareth, traveled to Bethlehem to be registered.
While they were in Bethlehem, Mary went into labor and gave birth to Jesus in a stable, because there was no room for them at the inn. Jesus was wrapped in swaddling clothes and placed in a manger, because there was no other place for him to sleep.
According to the Gospel of Luke, the birth of Jesus was announced to shepherds who were tending their flocks in the fields nearby. An angel appeared to them and told them the good news of Jesus’ birth, and said that they would find the baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. The shepherds went to Bethlehem and found Jesus, as the angel had told them, and they spread the news of his birth throughout the town.
In the Gospel of Matthew, the birth of Jesus is also announced to wise men, or magi, who had followed a star to Jerusalem. They asked King Herod where the newborn king of the Jews could be found, and Herod told them to go to Bethlehem and search for the child. The wise men went to Bethlehem and found Jesus, and they brought him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
The Christmas story is a story of hope and joy, and is a reminder of the love and grace of God. It is a story that has inspired and comforted people for centuries, and is a central part of the Christian faith.
