Luke Chapter 2

What stood out for me here was the Shepherds involvement.

Shepherds were considered a despicable class, commonly regarded as little better than thieves.

Yet to such as these was granted not only the news of the birth of the Christ, but also a huge display of the heavenly hosts singing praises, now that must have been some concert - can you imagine the tonal perfection..... sorry, of course not, how could we.
Only Elisha and his servant are recorded as having also seen an angelic host (2Ki 6:17)

I note in passing that the Magi do not rate a mention in Luke's account of the virgin birth, but the start of the greatest event in all of history was given to those considered despised and lowly. Praise the Lord.
