Bethlehem…Egypt…Nazareth…the desert…Samaria… Jerusalem…Gethsemane…to the cross…into heaven. Luke 2:4; Mat. 2:13, 23, 4:1; John 4:4; Mark 11:11, 14:32; John 19:18; Luke 24:51 I watched one of those adorably funny Facebook videos of a preschool nativity scene where one darling girl dressed as a sheep couldn’t leave baby Jesus in the manger. To the horror of the attentive angel keeping watch, the sheep-girl grabbed Jesus and began rocking him. Then, while cameras snapped their pictures, the angel and the sheep-girl played tug-of-war with poor baby Jesus until the director stepped in. I think the little sheep-girl knew something we often forget at Christmas: we can’t keep Jesus in the manger.
