This nativity scene commemorates the birth of Christ. It was first published in his book titled, "Arnold Friberg's Little Christmas Book". Who were these shepherds who were privileged to witness rare and glorious historical events? Were they average shepherds tending their flocks, or were they Levite priests, assigned to guard the many sheep being specially raised, without blemish, for the use in sacrifice in the Temple at Jerusalem? Though we will never know the answer to those questions, we can only imagine their lives were forever touched by this miraculous moment. "And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph and the babe lying in a manger". Luke 2:15-16
