For unto us a Child is Born

1 And it came to pass that in those days there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that the whole world should be enrolled. 
2 This enrolling was first made by Cyrinus, the governor of Syria. 
3 And all went to be enrolled, every one into his own city. 
4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem: because he was of the house and family of David. 
5 To be enrolled with Mary his espoused wife, who was with child. 
6 And it came to pass that when they were there, her days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 
7 And she brought forth her first born son and wrapped him up in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger: because there was no room for them in the inn. 
8 And there were in the same country shepherds watching and keeping the night watches over their flock. 
9 And behold an angel of the Lord stood by them and the brightness of God shone round about them: and they feared with a great fear. 
10 And the angel said to them: Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy that shall be to all the people: 
11 For, this day is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. 
12 And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger. 
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God and saying: 

14 Glory to God in the highest: and on earth peace to men of good will. 

Luke was the Historian of the Gospel writers.  Just so you know.
