Mary Had a Little Lamb
( Oct. 22, 2013)
The nursery rhyme with the same name was about the Savior, Yeshua ha Mashiach, called Jesus the Christ in the Western world. This short story for young readers expands on the original account of Jesus’ birth in the Bible. It places the time of His birth during the Lord’s ordained Feast of Tabernacles. Details of Temple customs tie in with this holy birth and predestined birth place. A young boy learns the value of doing a good job and obeying his father.
Mary Had a Little Lamb will also be compelling to adults interested in historical fiction. Micah 4:8 in the Bible gives a clue to Jesus’ birthplace called the “tower of the flock” translated “Migdal Eder”.
