Story About Christmas

An old story is told behind the celebration of Christmas. According to which, once God sent a messenger named Gabriel to a young woman named Mary. God's angel Gabriel went to Mary and told her that she had to give birth to a son of God. Mary was shocked to hear this because she was still a virgin, so she asked Gabriel how this would be possible. So Gabriel said that God will make everything right. Time passed and Mary married a young man named Joseph.

God's angel Gabriel appeared in Joseph's dream and told him that soon Mary would be pregnant and that he would have to take special care of her because her child was none other than the Lord Jesus himself. At that time Joseph and Mary lived in Nazareth, a part of present-day Israel. At that time Nazareth was a part of the Roman Empire. Once for some reason, Joseph and Mary went to Bethlehem, which is now in Palestine, for, work, in those days there were many people, due to which all the hospices and asylums were full, so that Joseph and Mary could not take refuge for themselves. Got it After much exhaustion, both of them got a place in a stable, and at the same place after midnight the Lord Jesus was born.

Some shepherds were grazing their sheep near the stables, there the angels of God appeared and informed those shepherds about the birth of Lord Jesus. The shepherds went to the newborn and bowed to him. When Jesus grew up, he preached all over Galilee and tried to cure every disease and infirmity of the people. Gradually his fame spread all around. There were also some enemies of Jesus' virtuous actions who in the end tortured Jesus and killed him by hanging him on the cross. But Jesus continued to work in the direction of human welfare throughout his life, not only that when he was being crucified, he still said that 'Father, forgive these people because these people are ignorant.'
