For Unto Us a Child is Born

"For unto us a Child is born; unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder. These will be his royal titles: 'Wonderful,' 'Counselor,' 'The Mighty God,' 'The Everlasting Father,' 'The Prince of Peace.'"

I chose this Old Testament verse from Isaiah 9:6 as an illustration of the Christmas story. The birth of Christ fulfilled numerous prophecies that were written hundreds of years before the actual event in Bethlehem.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Nice Nativity scene, it is a good idea to post it.
In Portugal we have the tradition of making these "pres├ępios", at home and in public spaces, sometimes with many Christmas figurines, everyone of them converging to the creche, all set in a landscape with green moss, sometimes with river waters running and windmill sails turning round. I am posting some of them in Sesimbra blog.
