(Previous - How to Have a Closer Walk With Jesus)

Introduction

At this point in Luke's account of the birth of Jesus (Luke 2:8-111), Jesus had just been born. The wise men had not yet visited the baby Jesus (Matt. 2:1-11). There was a group of shepherds in the field keeping watch over their flock in the field. A rare event occurred, likely which had never happened to shepherds in the field before. An angel, then a multitude, of angels appeared to the shepherds with amazing, but welcome, news. It is this even that we will explore in this article.
