Wording of this Handout:
and if you aren't sure, check it up in luke 2:8-16
Now there were in the same country
builders? plumers? shepherds?
living out in the fields, keeping watch over their
stone walls? clothes lines? goats? Sheep?
When behold, an angel of the Lord
flew by? landed on the hillside? stood before them?
and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
and they were sad? and they were greatly afraid?
Then the angel of the Lord said to them
"Do not laugh?" "Do not cry?" "Do not be afraid?"
For behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to
Just your family? All people? Only the Jews?
"For there is born to you day in the
City of David? City of Paul? City of Jonathan?
A Saviour, Who is Christ the Lord.
And this will be the sign to you:
You will fall down? You will shiver? You will find a Babe?
Wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a
Bath? Shed? Manger? Water trough? Box?
And suddenly there was with the angel a
Flock of geese? A multitude of the heavenly host? Bees?
Praising God and saying:
"Glory to the Babe? Glory to Mary? Glory to God?
In the highest and on earth
Parties? Plenty of food? peace? Rivers of water? Good will toward men?! So
it was, when the angels had gone away from them
The shepherds danced? The shepherds went to sleep? Said?
To one another, let us now go to
"Town? The lake? Bethlehem? The local pub?
And see this thing that has come to pass, which the
Lord? Angels? People from town?
Have made known to us."
And they came with haste and found Mary and
John? Paul? Phillip? Joseph? Graham? Joseph?
And the Babe, lying in a manger.
