The Shepherds' Candle

Luke 2:8-20

The third candle on the Advent wreath which we light is the Shepherds' candle because God first gave the good news of our savior's birth to shepherds. We see the significance in that because Jesus is the shepherd of all Christians, and because the shepherds were average people who would effectively spread the good news to others.

This Sermon is part of the Series "The Advent Candles"

For the 2020 Advent season we are focusing on one of the oldest Advent traditions: the lighting of the Advent candles as we look forward to the birth of our savior. We look at the prophecies given in the Old Testament about the coming savior, and we see how they were all fulfilled.
