by Mark Weinrich
When the angels appeared outside Bethlehem, shepherds were scorned, despised, and condemned. For as they watched their flocks lest none should stray. They did not keep the Sabbath day. So they were regarded just above lepers, but no better than treacherous tax collectors. Yet that night in fields outside Bethlehem; the greatest of news was given to the least of men… So that all, even shepherds might rejoice in Him.
