They Were Told

by Gail Keffer

At Christmas time, we think of the angels coming to the Shepherds and telling them about the birth of Christ in the little town of Bethlehem. And we often think about Mary and Joseph and their trip to Bethlehem for the census after the angel(s) visited both of them in Nazareth, but we don’t often think about all the others that were told about the birth of Christ to prepare us for the coming Messiah. Some of these were even told in the Old Testament.
