Story Card included
(April, 1997) The long journey is over. The fear and exhaustion of the past
few days have been forgotten, and in their place is an overwhelming sense of joy.
In the makeshift nursery, Mary gazes tenderly at her infant. The concerned
innkeeper has brought a dough board from the kitchen to serve as a cradle for
the newborn baby - a fitting symbol, for in John 6:47-48 Jesus says, "verily,
verily, I say unto you. He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am
that bread of life." As was the custom, the baby was wrapped in long strips of
fabric called swaddling clothes, for it was believed that wrapping a baby snugly
insured strong bones. Mary wears red for suffering, and her blue cape represents
royalty. The baby Jesus wears white, for purity. A new life has begun.
