Christmas Memory Verses

November 16th, 2008

This Christmas I want C4 to memorize Scripture about Jesus’ birth. I think the experience will add to our homeschool devotion time and help her understand the Christmas story a little better. I also hope she holds the memory verses she learns close to her heart. One verse that I am considering is Luke 2:11Luke 2:11
English: World English Bible - WEB

11 For there is born to you, this day, in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11Luke 2:11

11 For there is born to you, this day, in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

The scene with the angels visiting the shepherds is a beautiful picture. You can find in Luke 2:8-15Luke 2:8-15
English: World English Bible - WEB

8 There were shepherds in the same country staying in the field, and keeping watch by night over their flock. 9 Behold, an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 The angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be to all the people. 11 For there is born to you, this day, in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 This is the sign to you: you will find a baby wrapped in strips of cloth, lying in a feeding trough.” 13 Suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army praising God, and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest, On earth peace, good will toward men.” 15 It happened, when the angels went away from them into the sky, that the shepherds said one to another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem, now, and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.”

. I am considering a few ways of presenting this piece of the Christmas story.

  • I will present a puppet show of the scene using our Little People ™ or dolls.
  • Act out the scene. I’ll have C4 assume the different roles each time we act it out. We’ll make our props, too.
  • Make a diorama of the scene. I think this project will open up a conversation about each of the elements of the scene – the shepherd and their attire, where the angels are and what they look like, etc.
  • Draw/paint a picture of the scene. This might make a beautiful piece of art work worthy of a frame.
  • Listen to the Hallelujah chorus. We might also watch a video of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing the Hallelujah chorus.
  • Read Christ is Born by Layne Haacke. This book includes illustrations for the Christmas story found in Luke.
