Matthew 1 - NIV
20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.
22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.
25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

God no longer comes near through a burning bush, tabernacle, prophet, or vision. He has come near through Jesus, who is God in the flesh, in order to reconcile us to him so that we can serve him and also carry the message of reconciliation to others.

The lengths to which God the Father would go in order to redeem and reconcile fallen humanity is a unfathomable testimony to His unrivaled position as God and Father of all. God the Son was indeed in a manger; fully God and fully the God-Man. Emmanuel!

Jesus Christ being born that first Christmas morning was, in my opinion, the greatest miracle of all, because every other miracle results from this miracle.
