Hello everyone, and welcome to “Little Bibliophile,” the podcast where I make up for my height with a whole lot of passion, passion for literature and stories. It is December – 2010 and thank you for joining me.
I have been thinking lately about reading a story that was Christmas-themed, as we are coming closer and closer to the holiday. I am about to embark on a vacation with my family, so it is likely that you won't hear from me again until after Christmas. But I could not think of anything that would be perfect to read. I thought of Dickens, but that would be too obvious. I thought of Louisa May Alcott, but then I would have to read a passage out of a larger novel instead of an actual short story.
But then I thought, why can't I just read the Bible? I hope none of you mind. I didn't think you would if I explained to you that this story has a lot of meaning for me not only religiously, but also in terms of literature. I think that the New Testament is beautifully written and contains some of the most poetic selections that mankind has ever written. Not to mention that no matter what your beliefs are, some of the teachings of Jesus are good to keep in mind.
This story is also very personal for me because my family has a tradition of reading it together every Christmas Eve.
So, as we approach this loving holiday, I will read the story of the birth of a man whose life was dedicated to loving others and teaching us to love as well.
And here is Luke 2:1-21 of the King James Version of the Bible.
