As we follow along with Luke, we are still with the shepherds in a field outside Bethlehem, but we are going with them into Bethlehem, after an angel has brought them good tidings of great joy for all people - good tidings of a newborn Savior - good tidings that prompted the praise of a multitude of angels. What the shepherds heard from the angels stirred them up. So, now, we move on to look at the determined, prompt visit by the shepherds, the driven proclamation by the shepherds, the deep pondering by Mary, and the delighted praise by the shepherds.
