Jan. 8. Jesus Is Born

Lk. 2:1-7

When Mary’s time had come to be delivered, she and Joseph had traveled from Nazareth to Bethlehem, the city of David to be registered for taxes. It was only about sixty-five miles, but traveling that distance in her condition was very hard. Because of the crowds, there were no available rooms at the inn, so they had to stay in a stable. In this humble stable she gave birth to the Son of God!
