Do You See What I See: Herod
December 8 & 9, 2018
After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of
King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked,“Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all
Jerusalem with him.
When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi,
he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in
Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in
accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi.
Matthew“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come
near. Repent and believe the good news!” Mark 1:15

...I lay down my life - .....No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord.... John 10:17-18
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. Matthew 16:24-25
... “Be still, and know that I am God;...” Psalm 46:10
