Destination Bethlehem: A Field
Destination Bethlehem (part 2) | Humble shepherds deserted their flocks and rushed to Bethlehem in order to verify what their senses told them could not have happened. Though the Son of God was born in humble circumstances, we must also know that He was heralded by Heaven’s choir. Have angels announced the birth of any other child other? Did ever such an august choir perform in more strange surroundings than did this choir?
With the bleating of sheep providing accompaniment, the messengers of heaven spoke to shepherds—the most humble of representatives—to announce the birth of the Son of God. A field beyond Bethlehem became the site of the most famous announcement in all the history—the announcement that God would provide a Redeemer for His fallen creature.
