All throughout Scripture, people revered and were fearful of God’s presence. As we read through the second chapter of the Gospel of Luke, the angel of the Lord appeared to the shepherds in the fields and it says the “glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.” Russell Johnson taught us through this passage that the angels brought the shepherds the good news of the coming Messiah. The angels brought the shepherds new hope, and the shepherds responded by celebrating it by sharing it with each other and then everyone they encountered.
