Dan's Blahs on the Book of Luke... [Chapter 2]

Continued from Chapter 1...

Well, in Chapter 1, there were a few important events. Let me recap a little:
  1. Announcing of birth of John.
  2. Announcing the birth of Jesus.
  3. The birth of John.
Let's see, in Chapter 2, a few more important events happened:
  1. Jesus is Born!
  2. An Angel Appeared to the Shepherds.
At that time, Emperor Augustus ordered a census to be taken throughout the whole Roman Empire. This meant everyone had to return to their own respective hometowns, to register themselves. Joseph and Mary set out to Bethlehem in Judea. When they arrived there, there were no place for them to stay, in the end, they stayed in a stable. This is the place where Jesus was born!

In the manger...
Some miles away, there were shepherds looking after their flocks. An angel appeared to them and told them "This very day in David's town your Saviour was born!". So the shepherds hurriedly found Mary and Joseph in the manger.

A week later, Jesus was circumcised. Mary and Joseph then presented Him to the Lord in Jerusalem. When Jesus was 12 years old, they went for the Passover Festival. When the festival was over, Jesus stayed back. His parents went looking for Him. They found Him sitting with the Jewish teachers, listening to them and asking questions.
