Pictorial Evidence of Scriptural Truth!!

snow in JerusalemThey say a picture is worth a thousand words…

Well, an acquaintance sent me a picture from Jerusalem, and it tells about a thousand words…

It may be hard to get the message just from this pic, so, here is another of the beautiful snow a couple days ago in Jerusalem.

snow3Here are a couple more interesting and glorious pictures that illustrate the same story, and of course…  the story.

In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; 11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is [a]Christ the Lord. 12 This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a [b]manger.” 13 And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace among men [c]with whom He is pleased.”

Luke 2:8-14

The ‘moral’ of the story?  (Or an abbreviated 1000 words, as told by the pictures?)

It is TOO COLD in December for shepherds OR flocks to be in the field at night!!  Therefore, Yeshua could NOT have been born in December!  And, especially not on the PAGAN high holy day of the 25th when legend has it that a number of “gods” were ‘born.’

Now, back to the beautiful pics that further illustrate this Scriptural truth!

Buy truth, and do not sell it,
Get wisdom and instruction and understanding.

Shalom!

    Wonder if it normally snows there in Dec? It certainly would not be a good time to have sheep or shepherd’s spending the night out in this. I’ve asked the Father to forgive me for following this tradition for so many years.

      I don’t think it happens very often, but this is the second winter in a row with snow that is more than a light dusting.

      I’m sure you are familiar with multiple mentions of snow in Scripture… Isaiah 1:18 as one example. Therefore, it is not a foreign concept to the region, but I also do not think it is a common occurrence.

      Like you, we’ve been heart-broken by the traditions we followed… Wonderful to find truth, even more blessed to have the opportunity to walk it out with others being called!

      Shalom to you and yours.
