Review and Discussion

Challenge your child to retell the story. Help him or her remember key details by asking
the following questions:

• What did the angels tell Mary and Joseph? (Mary would have a baby who would be God’s Son.)

• What good news did the angel tell the shepherds? (“Your Savior has been born.”)

Read the following thought aloud to help increase your child’s understanding:

A savior is someone who rescues someone else. Sin creates a separation between us and God
that we cannot repair. Thankfully, God loved us enough to send Jesus, our Savior, to save us
from our sin and bring us back to Him.

today in Bethlehem, the city of David (point forward)!
Luke 2:11 (NLT)
