Christmas Bread

Christmas Bread

Jesus, the Bread of Heaven, born in Bethlehem (the house of bread) and laid in a manger, feeding trough. O taste and see!

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:8

I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. John 6:51

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. Luke 2:12

ON A SIDE NOTE:

In Old Testament customs, the shepherds would wrap the newborn lambs in swaddling clothes to protect the body of the lambs which would be offered as sacrifice at the Temple just four miles away in Jerusalem. Wrapped in swaddling clothes to keep the new lambs without spot or blemish, they would be laid in a manger until they had calmed down.

The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. John 1:29

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
