Bethlehem Gazette: Breaking News

With so many in town for the census, the crowds have been unreal. “No room at the inn” has been heard by so many who have come to register.  

It has been reported that folks might even have to spend the night in stables.   

One young couple came into town with the very pregnant woman riding on a donkey. She looked as if she could deliver at just any moment. Unfortunately, they were also told there was no place to lay their heads. 

Soon after, the sounds of a newborn baby crying came from one of the nearby stables, which is really just a dark, dreary hole in a cave. On a cold winters night, what a hard time to bring a baby into the world.   

One would think that with all the folks in town for the census, the large crowd would be the headlines as the biggest story of the night – but then several amazing things began to happen.  

No sooner had the sound of a baby crying been heard than suddenly a star began to shine brightly over the town of Bethlehem  right over the stable.  It almost seemed to be pointing out the location to anyone who might be looking for the family.  

What a night this is turning out to be. Out of nowhere, a group of shepherds has been seen running into town. When questioned about why they were so excited, here is what they had to say: 

“We were out in the fields watching the sheep when suddenly an angel appeared before us.  Scared us half to death, but the first words they angel said were ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. 

Just when our hearts started beating again, suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest heaven and on earth peace to those on whom His favor rests.”  

In interviewing the shepherds, here is what they had to say.  

Now the talk of a Messiah has been passed down from generation to generation, and we all hurried into town to see Him and share with all the townspeople what we had been told. Nothing like this has ever happened in our little town.   

We found the baby lying in the manger wrapped in swaddling clothes, just as we had been told.  We had been waiting so long for this Messiah, and now He is here. Emmanuel has come. 

Be sure and check back for additional information. This has got to be the biggest thing to ever happen in Bethlehem. This is bound to be a lifechanging event and one that might never happen again.   

This is a headline of all headlines – one that will never be topped. Talk on the streets is that God’s own Son was born tonight.   

Peace on earth and goodwill to all men.
