Just The Facts

From Series: Good News, Great Joy

Luke 2:17-20  (ID: 2998)

If you had just seen a multitude of angels, what would you be talking about when you went into town? The shepherds in Luke 2 focused on what the angels had said—their message of a Savior's birth—and not on the drama of the experience. In this message, Alistair Begg draws our attention to the historical nature of the Gospel accounts. This is evidence that supports belief and demands a response from each of us.


17And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. 18And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.
