En Herrens engel stod for dem,
og Herrens herlighet lyste om
dem, og de ble meget forferdet.
14 In the highest
heaven, glory to God!
And on earth, peace among people of good will!
15 No sooner had the angels left them
and gone back into heaven than the shepherds said to one another, "Let’s go
over to Beit-Lechem and see this thing that has happened, that Adonai
has told us about."
6 Hurrying off, they came and found Miryam and Yosef, and the baby
lying in the feeding trough.
17 Upon seeing this, they made known what they had been told about
18 and all who heard were amazed by what the shepherds said to them.
19 Miryam treasured all these things and kept mulling them over in her
20 Meanwhile, the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for
everything they had heard and seen; it had been just as they had been told.

Det finner du blant annet i evangeliet etter Matteus, kapittel 2.
For hva var det de sa, de vise som kom fra Østerland for å se den jødenes
konge som nå er født (Matt 2:2)?
Vi har sett hans
stjerne i Østen!
Himmelens og universets Gud hadde altså markert og kunngjort
begivenheten med all tydelighet, ikke bare lokalt for hyrdene på
Betlehems-markene og i Israel, men for den hele verden!

som alltid toner i ditt og mitt hjerte - midt i alle livets situasjoner.
Inntil Han kommer
tilbake igjen. Ikke som Jesusbarnet. Men som vår Frelser og Forløser. Og i
makt og herlighet. Han som er Kongenes Konge. Herrenes Herre. Våre jødiske
venner venter hans ankomst. Den kristne venter hans gjenkomst. Den ene,

det mål som Loven (Guds lære) sikter mot, Han som tilbyr rettferdighet for
hver den som fatter tiltro til Ham.
