Luke's Advent Day 2

Did anyone join me in the countdown to Christmas by reading Luke 1 yesterday? Here is the link to Luke 2 in the NIVR and a few questions to get you thinking today.

1. What was the good news of great joy for all the people that the angels shared? Why is that good news? (2:11)

2. Describe how different groups reacted to the news of Jesus' birth. Which group or individual are you most like in your response to Jesus?

the angels:
the shepherds:
the people who talked with the shepherds:
Mary, Jesus' mother:

3. Why do you think Simeon and Anna were able to recognize that this baby Jesus was the Messiah they had long awaited?
