The First Noel
Kim Mitzo Thompson
Classic Christmas carols are perfect for reflecting on the true meaning of the season.Discover how the angels proclaimed Jesus’ birth to the frightened shepherds, and then follow the shepherds as they are guided by the star shining in the east to the stable where Jesus was born. “The first Noel the angel did say, was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay; in fields where they lay keeping their sheep, on a cold winter’s night that was so deep. Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel, born is the King of Israel.” The scripture verse from Luke 2:8-12 is featured in the audio book as well. “And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2: 8-12 NIV Holy Bible, New International Version®, NIV® Copyright ©1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica, Inc.®Used by permission.
