Excerpt from The Shepherd Who Did Not Go to Bethlehem Sometimes he could see a distant town or hamlet, and once he saw the white houses of Bethlehem shining far away among the hills, and he remembered how it was told that the Hope of Israel should come from thence, and he wondered if the shepherds on the lonely hills would see this Promised : S.

Really, you can't go wrong with a Lamplighter book. Eardley comes to be the new curate for Axe, but a broken leg keeps him from performing his duties.

God uses this circumstance for good through the lectures he gives while confined to his bed. These lectures on the shepherd of Bethlehem (David) touch the lives of many in the little town/5.

In fact the angels did not have to tell the shepherds precisely where to go in Bethlehem to find Jesus, because there was only one manger where sacrificial lambs were birthed, the cave under the watch tower of Migdal Edar.

The reference for this is a web post by Cooper P. Abrams III titled, “Where was the Birth Place of the Lord Jesus?”. But usually it was done by hired shepherds, who only too often did not justify the confidence reposed in them (John )."[2] Some of Israel's great heroes were shepherds -- Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and David.

Both Psalm 23 and Jesus compare God's care to that of a Good Shepherd. Bethlehem is a mere miles (less than 9 kilometers) from the Jewish capital, Jerusalem. Why didn't the angels appear to the Roman Governor Quirinius or King Herod. Why didn't they appear to the Jewish high priest at the Temple.

Again, why shepherds. Regulations of Mishnah Consider the possibility that these were not shepherds of ordinary sheep. God had become a human being, was born in Bethlehem, and his name is Jesus.

Yet, this good news was proclaimed by angels to these shepherds. We may think that protocol would demand that news this important should be told to the highest authorities in the region, if not the world. But Saul did not know that David had been anointed by Samuel.

After a time, Saul seemed well; and David returned to Bethlehem and was once more among his sheep in the field.

Perhaps it was at this time that David sang his shepherd song, or it may have been long afterward, when David looked back in thought to those days when he was leading his.

When the angels had gone back into Heaven and the beautiful light faded into the darkness of the night, the shepherds did not wait for the morning to come.

They started at once for Bethlehem. They said, “Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is. The shepherds who navigated the dark streets of Bethlehem to find the newborn baby were not the kind of men that regularly made kingly visits. These men were separated from mainstream society and likely their language, habits and associations would have been repulsive to.

It’s Bethlehem and the sheep BETHLEHEM AND ITS SHEPHERDS. Bethlehem is perfect for grazing and guarding sheep, just as it was in Jacob and David’s day. But, this is no ordinary flock and these are not run-of-the-mill shepherds.

The Shepherd Priests of this field tend the flock of the Temple. The shepherds near Bethlehem, however, who heard the angels shout for joy over the birth of the Messiah, were not your average sheepherder.

They took care of a very special set of sheep. According to Alfred Edersheim in his book "Sketches of Jewish Social Life," they were watching sheep that eventually would be offered as sacrifices in Jerusalem's Temple. Shepherd Derrial Book (born Henry Evans) was a passenger aboard Serenity, and a friend and spiritual teacher to its crew.

Before his time aboard the ship, he led a life marked by violence and conflict, both inside and out, which remained a secret from the crew. To the crew of Serenity, Derrial Book's past was a mystery.

He indicated early on that he was a shepherd who had been living in the. Matthew Thou Bethlehem, &c., art not the least among the princes of Juda — It is justly observed by Dr.

Doddridge, after Erasmus, here, that “when this and several other quotations from the Old Testament, which we find in the New, come to be compared with the original, and even with the Septuagint, it plainly appears that the apostles did not always think it necessary to transcribe.

In my imagination, I see one shepherd who did not go to Bethlehem that night. One shepherd stayed with the sheep while the others ran to see if the news was true. Why might this have been his choice?

Why did he not go? Consider some possibilities. He was too tired. It had been a long week, or a long series of weeks.shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness; nor yet as lording it over those allotted to your charge, but proving to be examples to the flock.9, (a) What might Mary and Joseph have thought about while approaching Bethlehem?

(b) Why did Joseph and Mary lodge where they did? 9 Mary must have breathed a sigh of relief when she first caught sight of Bethlehem. As they mounted the hillsides, passing by olive groves —among the last of the crops to be harvested— Mary and Joseph may well have thought about the history of this little.
