Christmas Presents And Birth of Jesus Christ
Once there lived a young Jewish girl named “Mary”. She was engaged to get married to “Joseph”. Mary witnessed something divine and strange. God sent angel “Gabriel” to inform Mary about the baby she is going to carry, who would not have a human father but will be the child of the holy spirit. He also said that the child will be the King of the Jews and his name would be “Jesus Christ”. He would be the child of the highest and he would reign forever.
On learning about Mary expecting a child, Joseph was upset. Angel appeared to Joseph as well. They urged Joseph to take care of Mary and he would be the human father of the holy child. Joseph obeyed God’s instructions and left with Mary to their hometown Jerusalem to pay taxes as per the new law imposed. He could not find a place to stay as all the inns were full. So, they walked a few miles away from the city and found a manger in a barn that was built to accommodate cattle and livestock as per what is mentioned in the Gospels of Luke and Matthews.
It was a silent night! Mary and Joseph were just about to witness the birth of the holy child. Here he was. The embodiment of peace, divinity the redeemer. A star was twinkling so bright. Millions of angels danced, sung, and jumped in happiness. They carried the good news to the shepherds nearby. They were told about the baby who will be wrapped in clothes laid in a manger and that he would be a divine being. It was a testimony of what the angels told them.
Few kings assumed to be three(Melchior, Gaspar, Balthazar) also referred to as “Magi”, said to be magicians or astrologers who had known that a divine child would be born were waiting for this holy event. They understood the birth of Jesus Christ by seeing the star that shown so bright, they kvell. They decked up and carried expensive gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and myrrh from the east to worship the newly born king of Jews.
