Matthew 1, Luke 1

 Much has been said about the humility of the birth of Christ (the city, the manger, the shepherds… Mary & Joseph)  

The story of the kings (Matt 2:1-11)    

Part of the humility is in who God had chosen to be parents of the Christ-child  

The story of Joseph (Matt 1:18-24)        

The story of Mary (Luke 1:26-37)    

Eph 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
