Start our Tell Me the Story of Jesus
Bible Study from the beginning:

We will pick up at the point where John the Baptist was spiritually chosen by God to prepare the way for the Jesus who is the Son of God placed into the bloodline of King David as Prophecy had predicted.

The Birth of Jesus Christ Bible Study Prophecy

At that time, there was a law from Caesar Augustus, who was the first Roman emperor, that the whole world must go to the city that each was born in and register so they could be taxed. What they were doing was trying to get a grip on the Israelites because the Romans were ruling them at the time.

Joseph had to go back to Bethlehem to register, because that was his birthplace and Mary was close to her time to deliver the baby.

Little did the Romans know, that they were fulfilling scripture by having Joseph return to his birthplace of Bethlehem ...

Micah 5:2

And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

This is a sign that ... Jesus is Lord !!!

Where Was Jesus Born?

Now, after a long journey ... Joseph and Mary finally arrived, but there was no room at the inn because so many others had also come from other towns to register, so they had to stay elsewhere.

Now, this brings up the question as to exactly where Jesus was born in that city. The stories we see on television and books as a child, portrays that The Birth of Jesus Christ Bible Study story occurred in a stable because He was born in a "manger" ...

But, the Bible does not actually state what type of structure He was born in, so many people debate the issue. Some say it was a barn or stable. Others say, back then they used caves as stables, so it was a cave. Still others say it was a house and they explain it by saying that the mangers, being feeding troughs for animals, were kept inside during winter to protect livestock from cold. But at either rate ... Jesus Christ is Born.

Luke does say the Wise men visited Him in a house (Which we will see in a bit) but that may have been after the birth of Jesus and they found lodging.

In Truth ... It matters not if our Lord was born in a barn, cave or house ... The point is ...

Jesus, our Savior ... Was born !!!

We now have Grace because of God's love for us. Never allow such issues to take away from that Truth. Let us continue, shall we?

Shepherd's Visitor

Mary gave birth to the baby Jesus. She wrapped Him up in long bands of cloth called swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger.

Let's take a little Birth of Jesus Christ Bible field trip ... There were shepherds staying in the field nearby keeping a night watch on their sheep and the Angel of the Lord appeared to them. The glory of the Lord shone all around them and it scared them. The Angel said to them, Don't be afraid, I'm bringing you good news of great joy for all people. For you today, in the city of David, a Savior is born, which is Christ the Lord. And this will prove it to you. You will find the baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. Suddenly, with the Angel, there appeared countless Angels praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

When the Angels left and went back to Heaven, the shepherds said to one another, Let's go to Bethlehem and see what the Lord told us about. They hurried to find Mary, Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger. Then they spread the news to other nations all about the child that the Angel told them about. Anyone who heard it wondered, but Mary believed all that Gabriel had told her, deep in her heart.

This is a sign that ...

Jesus Christ is Born and That Jesus is Lord !!!

Circumcision Visitors

On the eighth day after the baby Jesus was born, according to the law of Moses, the holy family followed the customs of the Jews by having Jesus circumcised. They named the baby Jesus as the Angel told both Mary and Joseph before the baby was conceived.

They took Jesus to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord and to offer a sacrifice for Him (as the law of the Lord says in Exodus 13:2, Every male that opens the womb is holy to the Lord) of a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.

Here is another prophecy from the Birth of Jesus Christ Bible events. There was a wise old man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon. He was a pious man, waiting for the promised Messiah of Israel and the Holy Ghost was with him. The Holy Ghost revealed to him that he wouldn't die until he had seen the Lord. The Spirit led him into the temple and when Mary and Joseph brought in the child Jesus, Simeon took Him in his arms and blessed God, saying, Lord, now let your servant die in peace according to your Word: For my eyes have seen your salvation which you have prepared before the face of all people; a light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel. Yes, more proof and reason to shout ... Jesus Christ is Born!

Joseph and Mary were amazed at the things that Simeon said, and Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary, This child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign that will be spoken against; (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.

There was also a prophetess named Anna from the tribe of Asher, who was very old and had been a widow for 84 years. She didn't leave the temple, but served God with fasting and prayers night and day. And she came in at that very moment and gave thanks to the Lord and prayed for all who wanted salvation in Israel.

These are more signs that ...

Jesus is Lord !!!

A New Star Proves Jesus Christ is Born

Now, as we continue sojourning into The Birth of Jesus Christ Bible Study adventure, there was a great new Star in the Heavens and all saw it.

Wise men from the East came to Jerusalem and said, Where is the baby that has been born King of the Jews? We saw His star in the east and we've come to worship Him.

As you may well imagine, Herod, the king at the time, was very jealous when he heard the news that a New king was just born. He gathered all of his top men together and insisted to know where this Christ child was supposedly born because there was prophecy in scripture that foretold of all of the events taking place. They answered, in Bethlehem of Judea, for it is written by the prophet (Micah 5:2), And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

So, secretly ... Herod asked the wise men what time the star appeared and then he sent them to Bethlehem saying, Go look for the child and when you find Him, come back and tell me so I can come and worship Him too. He was actually deceiving them and had sinister thoughts and plans in mind.

The wise men left and the star that they saw in the east led them until it stopped over where Jesus was and they fell down and worshipped Him. They gave Him presents of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Then God warned these wise men in a dream that they shouldn't go back to Herod, so they went back to their home country by a different route.

Now, here is a little fact for you ... In almost every book and movie you read or watch there are three wise men. However, the Bible does not say there were three wise men. The reason people say that there were three wise men is because they gave the baby Jesus three different types of gifts, being gold, frankincense and myrrh. There very well may have been three wise men or maybe three hundred.

But, again ... It matters little how many wise men were led by God by a star to see Jesus. The Truth is that the Birth of Jesus Christ Bible story is proven by prophecy.

Just that God led them by a New Star and that was yet another sign that ...

Jesus Christ is Born and Jesus is Lord !!!

The Angel of the Lord appeared again to Joseph in a dream and said, Get up and take the young child and His mother and flee into Egypt. Stay there until I let you know. Herod will look for the young child to kill Him. Joseph woke up and took the baby Jesus and Mary in the middle of the night and left for Egypt. They were there until Herod died and what the prophet Hosea said was fulfilled (Hosea 11:1), Out of Egypt have I called my Son.

Meanwhile ... During the time that the holy family was in Egypt, before Herod's death, Herod realized that he was tricked by the wise men who never returned. He was burning mad and had all the male children from two years old and under killed in Bethlehem and the surrounding area hoping to kill this New King. This fulfilled what the prophet Jeremiah had written in Jeremiah 31:15, In Ramah there was a voice that was heard. Sadness and crying and mourning. Rachel weeping for her children, and she would not be consoled because they are dead. Ramah was in the area of Israel that God gave to the tribe of Benjamin, and Joseph's two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim.

Years later, When Herod died, an Angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph, who was living in Egypt with his family as he was warned, and said, Take the young child and His mother and go into the land of Israel. Those who tried to take the child's life are dead.

So Joseph took Jesus and Mary back to Israel, but when he heard that Herod's son Archelaus inherited the kingdom in Judea, he was afraid to go there, however, being warned by God in a dream, he went into Galilee. They settled in a city called Nazareth (That is why you have heard the saying ... Jesus of Nazareth) and the prophecy was fulfilled that was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene (Isaiah 11:1). And Jesus grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom and the Grace of God was with Him.

The Birth of Jesus Christ Bible Study story suddenly starts again years later as nothing is shared with us for the next few years of Jesus growing up. It begins again by saying that Mary and Joseph went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover.

When Jesus was twelve years old and they went to Jerusalem, when they were returning home, Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem without Mary and Joseph knowing. Thinking that Jesus was with the group that they were traveling with, they traveled back a day's journey before they noticed Him missing and they looked for Him among their relatives and friends. When they couldn't find Him, they went back to Jerusalem to find Him.

After three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the middle of the doctors and teachers. He was listening to them and asking them questions and preaching to them. Everyone who heard Him was astonished at His understanding and His answers (Isaiah 11:2).

When Mary and Joseph saw Him they were amazed and Mary asked Him, Son, why have you done this to us? Joseph and I have been worried sick. And Jesus said to them, Why were you looking for me? Didn't you know that I must be about my Father's business?

They didn't understand what He meant. He went back with them to Nazareth and stayed with them, but Mary knew in her heart that He was right. And Jesus grew older and in favor with God and man.
