The True Nativity: Shepherds, fields, and flocks

December 15, 2021 - 18 Minutes

By Dr. Cyndi Parker

I invite a friend and mentor to join me and discuss the significance of reading the Bible in its physical context. In the second half of the episode we discuss Luke 2 and the geographical information contained in the narrative that helps us imagine the nativity scene in a more realistic way. In particular, what do we learn by reading that the shepherds were in the fields with their flocks at night?

Podcast Notes

Dr. Paul Wright is the recently retired president of Jerusalem University College. He is a published author, but for those who are interested in geography, his recent book Holman Illustrated Guide to Biblical Geography is a MUST read.
