Augustus taxeth all the Roman empire: Joseph goeth with Mary to be taxed at Bethlehem. The birth of Christ: an angel bringeth news thereof to the shepherds: the heavenly host praise God. The shepherds, finding it to be as the angel had said, glorify God. The circumcision of Christ. The purifying of Mary. Simeon's prophecy, and Anna's, concerning Christ. Jesus groweth, and increaseth in wisdom. At twelve years of age he goeth with his parents to Jerusalem, and questioneth with the doctors in the temple: he is obedient to his parents.
