Inspired by . . . A Season in Scripture XIII

Scripture Pictures - Cindee Snider Re

In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn. (Luk 2:1-7)

And so, Jesus came to be born in Bethlehem. The prophecy from day one fulfilled. 

As you might imagine, this was not an easy time for Mary. Pregnant. Riding for days on a donkey. Giving birth in such mean circumstances. 

My friend, Mary Geisen, in her 2nd Sunday of Advent post, considers Mary and Joseph's journey toward Bethlehem and what it might mean for us as we journey these last days before Christmas, waiting to celebrate His birth.

It's worth taking the time to read. Just click either of the links in the paragraph above.
