The Wise Men followed the star, but how did the shepherds know where to go?
When we hear the Christmas story in Luke 2, we envision a small stable in the little town. There’s Joseph standing with a staff; Mary is sitting beside the manger filled with fresh straw, and a newborn baby is lying quietly therein. The barnyard animals complete the heartwarming scene by silently standing in seemingly hushed reverence. The shepherds have heard the angels’ announcement and are ready to hasten to . . . which stable in Bethlehem? How did they know? It isn’t certain, but some believe the answer to that is in the little known prophecy in Micah 4:8 about Migdal Eder. Listen as Bob Newhouse shares the story of Migdal Eder.
