What child is this who causes the herald angels to sing? Why does this one born in the little town of Bethlehem bring joy to the world? This Advent season, we’ll take a look at Jesus through the eyes of those who witnessed his arrival: Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, Simeon, and the wise men.
Whether these accounts from the Gospels are very familiar to us or whether we’re hearing these stories for the first time, the invitation is the same: Come and behold him! Our prayer is that seeing Jesus and his birth in fresh ways this Christmas will stir in us deeper adoration of him.
