Bible Quotes

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
(Isaiah 7:14) ESV 

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
(Isaiah 9:6,7) ESV 

Thus says the Lord: “Learn not the way of the nations, nor be dismayed at the signs of the heavens because the nations are dismayed at them, for the customs of the peoples are vanity. A tree from the forest is cut down and worked with an axe by the hands of a craftsman. They decorate it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so that it cannot move. Their idols are like scarecrows in a cucumber field, and they cannot speak; they have to be carried, for they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.”
(Jeremiah 10:2-5) ESV 

Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: ...
(Matthew 1:18-25) ESV 

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him; and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet: ...
(Matthew 2:1-12) ESV 

And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.
(Matthew 2:11) ESV 

Then Herod, when he saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, became furious, and he sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under, according to the time that he had ascertained from the wise men.
(Matthew 2:16) ESV 

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin's name was Mary. And he came to her and said, “Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you!” But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and tried to discern what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. ...
(Luke 1:26-56) ESV 

In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. ...
(Luke 2:1-52) ESV 

And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
(Luke 2:8) ESV 

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
(John 3:16) ESV

10) Where did Joseph take Mary and the Baby to protect them from Herod's murderous intentions?

12) According to the Bible, how many wise men were there?

13) As well as being a gift from the wise men, at what other time was "myrrh" associated with Christ?


It is "Silent Night" that is the most popular carol of all.

It doesn't. That date of December 25th was chosen for the celebration of Christ's birth several centuries later. Actually, the weather in Palestine was often bad in December. The Romans would not likely have planned their census for then. Nor would the shepherds be grazing their flocks out in the open fields then. A more likely date for Christ's birth is some time late September. 

We do not know if Jesus was born in a stable. The Bible says there was no room for them in the inn at Bethlehem–likely because so many had come to register in the census. A manger is said to be the place the newborn Baby was laid, but there is no mention of a stable (Lk. 2:7). 

4. The angel said He would be "wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger" (Lk. 2:12). Swaddling (or swathing) cloths were strips of cloth commonly used to wrap a newborn.

5. When the angels appeared to the shepherds, one of them announced the birth of Christ, then they all said, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace" (Lk. 2:11, 14). A carol that describes the incident using the Bible's wording almost exactly is "While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night." 

6. The wise men went to the city of Jerusalem (Matt. 2:1-2), likely because they expected a "King" to be born in a palace in the capital city. 

7. The Bible says, "He was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him" (Matt. 2:3). No doubt he feared that someone was plotting a political revolt. In the time between the Old and New Testaments, others had arisen claiming to be Israel's promised Messiah or new ruler. 

8. It was the Jewish chief priests and scribes, who quoted the Old Testament words of Micah 5:2 that revealed the birthplace of the coming Messiah (Matt. 2:4-6).  

9. Herod was hoping to destroy the baby Jesus (Matt. 2:13). To be sure he got the right baby, Herod ordered "all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under" to be slain (Matt. 2:16). 

10. After the wise men left them, the family fled to Egypt, where they remained until they learned of the death of Herod (Matt. 2:13-15

11. Noel means birthday. In the Middle Ages, especially in France, travelling troubadours would go from town to town, singing songs and reciting poetry. They also carried the news of the day. And a call of "Noel, noel, noel!" would indicate that an important birth was about to be announced.

12. We are not told how many wise men there were. The traditional thinking that there may have been three comes from the fact that three gifts were presented–gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 

13. During His crucifixion, Jesus was offered a drink of wine mixed with myrrh (Mk. 15:23). It was used in this case as a sedative to somewhat dull the pain suffered on the cross. But the Lord refused to drink it. Myrrh was also one of the spices used in the wrapping of Christ's body at the time of His burial (Jn. 19:38-40).5
