What did Gabriel say to the shepherds?
The Story in the Bible
And look, an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for see, I bring you good news of great joy which will be to all the people.
Did the angels sing to the shepherds?
After the angel told the shepherds about the birth of Jesus, the angel was joined by an army of angels, and they sang praises to God saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
Why is it significant that Jesus was born in a stable?
He felt that people had forgotten the meaning of Christmas and wanted a visual reminder for people of the importance of Jesus birth. The stable reminds us that Jesus came into the world with nothing. The shepherds represent us – the people that Jesus came to serve.
