    The Glory of the Lord hovering above providing the way.

    The makers of the video have some remarkable information that Luke never had.

    Joseph and Mary travelled to Bethlehem alone and with difficulty in rugged country. ( the scripture doesn’t say that )
    Mary rode on a donkey ( the scripture doesn’t say that )
    Joseph and Mary were desperate to find accommodation as soon as they arrived in Bethlehem and they arrived at night ( the scripture doesn’t say that )
    Mary went into labour immediately on the night of arriving in Bethlehem ( the scripture doesn’t say that )

    Does the scripture give us authority to construct our own tradition, or does the scripture warn about adding to the words of scripture. What happened to the “reformed” Sola Scriptura.

    The song here appears to be a hymn to Mary. Mary said ” My soul magnifies the Lord “, this song appears to magnify Mary.
    The scripture says ” Worship the Lord your God and serve only Him “

    Never heard this song before

    Scholars are permitted to eloborate on what may or may not have been & why etc. but to explain that in a song would probably spoil it. I dont think the song is saying this is the text of Scripture.

    Either way its closer to the truth than the North Pole dude where its also very cold. I dont think Roman soldiers spoke in English either. Probably lots of bloopers. Just like us, no matter what we do we always fall short.

    Bethlehem has much history, OT & NT. She has changed over the years but God remains the same. Its a lovely song & a humble birth, nice arrangement. Luke 1:52.Soli Deo gloria.
