The first people to hear of the Savior’s birth weren’t rich or powerful, but poor and unimportant shepherds going about their daily work. Alistair Begg describes for us these shepherds’ response, from their journey to Bethlehem to their proclamation of the promised Messiah. Two thousand years later, God continues to reach people in the midst of their daily lives, calling them to be bearers of His great message of joy.
1In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered.
