by Alan Bedworth
The day Mary gave birth to Jesus the stable looked forlorn, yet Joseph her husband was by her side. Animals were also witness to this King being born in their stable. A bright shining star guided shepherds and the Wise Men to see this Holiest of babies ever born. As he became older.... Jesus, the son of God preached the scriptures to the masses wherever he went. A performer of miracles, and an understanding of the common people was his strength. An enemy poured disdain on Jesus. The conquerors from Italy were opposed to his prayers. Preferring to worship idols, the earth and sky were their deities. Finally, Jesus was captured and crucified by his non-believers. Not understanding that Jesus was willing to give his life for his belief and followers. Though this was two thousand years ago. Jesus, the son of God still lives on in people's beliefs.
