About this painting

In Luke 2 we find the story of the birth of Jesus. (=God saves) The eternal Son of God left heaven to become a human being, and in very humble circumstances too; a manger was his cradle. Shepherds, people of the lower social class in Israel, heard the angels proclaim the gospel - the happy news that the Saviour was born. They believed the words of the angel, and came to worship Jesus.
