THE GOOD MESSAGE OF
JESUS THE CHRIST
Interpretation

6. Jesus is Born in Bethlehem.

As the inn was crowded with people, a secluded place was arranged away from the noise and disturbance. By society's standards it was a humble place where the animals were kept. Also it was the simple shepherds keeping watch on the hillsides who heard and responded to the divine message; they were guided by angels, and their vision was confirmed when they found the new-born child in the manger. The divine message of peace and goodwill was already being proclaimed and heard. Mary also contemplated these blessings in her heart.
