Scripture text: Luke 2: 8-20               Preacher: Rev David Sutherland                Date: 21 December 2014 

Congruent with the declared aim of his Gospel, “so you can be certain of the truth of everything you were taught” (Luke 1:4 NLT), Luke uses the amazing experience of the shepherds, described in Luke 2:8-20, to demonstrate that the baby born in Bethlehem that day truly was the Son of God. The sermon reflects on Luke’s account of the episode and proposes how today’s reader of the narrative should respond to it.
