A Christmas Story Quiz: The Birth of Jesus

The birth of the Baby Jesus

Luke 2:1-21 is one of the most read passages during the Christmas season—and for good reason. It depicts the conditions surrounding Mary and Joseph’s trip to Bethlehem before she went into labor to give birth to God’s only son.

The events of the annunciation in Luke’s first chapter culminate in a lowly manger predicted by the Old Testament prophets. The angels and shepherds rejoice and worship at the coming of the Messiah, the one who was promised to “take away the sins of the world.”

Today’s Christmas Story Quiz will cover information recorded in Luke’s account of the birth of Jesus that precious faithful night. Merry Christmas!
