Luke II 1-12

Filed under: Social Commentary — williamthecoroner @ 22:40

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. ([And] this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this [shall be] a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

Merry Christmas everyone.  And let us hope for the ideal, Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men, no matter what faith you have.


  1. “And let us hope for the ideal, Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men, no matter what faith you have.”

    Amen to that. Merry Christmas, William!

  3. Of the increase of his government and of peace
    there will be no end,
    upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom,
    to establish it, and to uphold it
    with justice and with righteousness,
    from this time forth and for ever more.
    The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

    Happy Christmas, William the Coroner!
