P erhaps they were the lowest of the shepherds doing night duty watching the sheep. Perhaps they were the owner shepherds guarding the sheep at lambing time. Sheep were necessary for food, for clothing, and for religious ceremony in Israel.
What does the Bible say about the angel Gabriel? | rescayturninglmem.tk
Being a shepherd was an honorable profession. It is fitting that shepherds should hear the angelic annunciation.
After all, the Lamb of God is about to arrive on the scene, the Good Shepherd who will give His life for the sheep is about to take His first breath of humanity. Thirty-three years later He will breathe His last. The shepherds were faithfully executing the routine of their livelihood, but that routine was soon to be interrupted by an angel, by the manifestation of the glory of God, and by a multitude of angels. The darkness of night is overwhelmed by the brightness of the glory of God and the appearance of an unnamed angel. Gabriel had been the select angel to Zacharias and to Mary, perhaps here as well to the shepherds.
The message of the angel is important, as is his confirming prophecy. As in the previous angelic communications the connection with the nation of Israel is stressed. Gabriel had already said:. This Son of David, unlike those of the connecting lineage, will be the Savior and the Messiah, and very God! Matthew The answer? The greatest miracle of all, the Incarnation. The angel becomes prophetic with a promised sign to confirm the message just delivered.
