Think! Jesus' Birth

Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-2:21; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26; Revelation 22:18-19
The Bible tells us many important facts about the birth of Jesus. It tells us that Jesus was a descendent of King David. It tells us that His birth was miraclous. It tells us that He is God's son. It tells us that an angel from God announced His birth not just to Mary and Joseph, but also to shepherds who were in a field at night watching their flocks. It tells us many other things regarding the circumstances of our Lord's birth. What the bible doesn't tell us is when Jesus was born. If God had wanted us to celebrate Jesus's birthday, he would have told us when he was born and how to celebrate that day.
