The night our Savior was born in Bethlehem there were many other shepherds watching over flocks in the Judean hill country. This outline submits some thoughts as to why these particular shepherds were so highly honored.
WHY THESE PARTICULAR SHEPHERDS?
Now there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.” Luke 2:8-9.
