A Christmas Story

 

In the Holy Bible, there is a story about Mary, who was visited by the angel Gabriel. He told Mary to rejoice that she would have a baby son, the son of God, and that she should call him Jesus. Mary went with Joseph (a carpenter) to Bethlehem but, when they arrived, the inn was full and there was no room for them. So Joseph and Mary stayed in a stable, shared with an ass and some sheep. When Jesus was born, there was no crib, so they laid him in the manger, from which the animals would eat their food.

 

Some shepherds saw a star shine in the East, and came with great joy to find Jesus. Wise men also came and told Herod of the birth of a new king. Each of the wise men brought Jesus a gift: gold, frankincense and myrrh.

 

When Jesus grew up, he would turn water into wine, heal people, and raise them from the dead. He taught us to love our neighbour as ourselves and that the Kingdom of Heaven is within us.
