The Arrival of Jesus – Christ at Christmas
In the 1990’s Queen Elizabeth visited the United States. Reporters delighted in spelling out the logistics for her trip. She bought with her, 1800 kilograms of luggage. Two outfits for every occasion, a mourning outfit in case someone died, 22 litres of plasma and special toilet seat covers. She also bought along her own hairdresser, two valets and a host of other attendants. A brief visit of royalty to a foreign country could easily cost $20 million dollars. By contrast, God’s visit to earth took place in a cowshed with no attendants present and nowhere to lay the newborn king but a trough that was used to feed animals. Its highly likely that more animals than humans witnessed the actual birth of Jesus.
