The Shepherds Told About Jesus Coloring Page

According to Luke 2:8-20, on the night of Jesus’ birth there were humble shepherds watching their sheep in the fields nearby Bethlehem. A host of angels suddenly appeared to these shepherds and told them of the Messiah’s birth. Excited, they went quickly to find the baby. They were anxious to see the King they had been expecting for years and years. And yes, Jesus would be the King they had waited for, but not the kind of king people were expecting. We should point out that while traditional nativity scenes typically include the Wisemen in the scene, it’s much more likely that the Wisemen did not visit Jesus until He was closer to two years old. This Shepherds Told About Jesus Coloring Page will help children imagine the stable scene as it truly was.
