I finally got these all written and uploaded. The story of getting it done is an event all in and of itself…….. So, here goes, right from the beginning and more or less all done.
And now that I’m a little closer to copying more pictures over I can actually write posts.
I’m odd in that I find genealogies in the Bible rather interesting to try and pick out names I recognize or ones I don’t expect. The same is true with Jesus.
The Birth of John and Jesus Announced
22The Birth of John and Jesus Announced
I always find it fun to compare the two reactions. Mary is just accepting and Zechariah is disbelieving. It’s interesting to me.
Again, it’s all in the reactions of the story, the neighbors trying to tell her she’s picked the wrong name amuses me.
As I was reading this I realized I’d never noticed part of the shepherds’ reaction. I’d never realized the shepherds had immediately gone out and told everyone what they’d seen. That means all of the town knew what had happened.
I love the different reactions of people who see Jesus when He is born. All of them praise God when they see Him if they see Him face to face. But those who don’t are scheming different reactions.
