The Sign and the Song

From Series: Good News, Great Joy

Luke 2:12-17  (ID: 2996)

Against the backdrop of the powerful Roman Empire and the reign of Caesar Augustus, God chose for Jesus to be born in humble circumstances, announcing His birth to a group of common shepherds. In this message, Alistair Begg explains that the sign of Jesus’ humble beginning foreshadowed His death and burial. The peace with God proclaimed by the angels is found by those who see with the eyes of faith and make room for the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.


12And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”
