New Testament Notes

Adoration of the Shepherds

Adoration of the Shepherds. The Gospel of Luke (2:8-20) tells that on the night Mary gave birth to Jesus Christ, an angel announced the Good News to the shepherds: 'Now in this same district there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch through the night over their flock', they were terrified when they saw the angel of the Lord, but the angel said: 'Do not be afraid; I bring you good news, new of great joy for the whole nation. Today there has been born to you in the city of David a deliverer - the Messiah, the Lord.' (Luke 2:8-12). After the angel had left them, the shepherds hurried to greet and worship the Child.
