Reading: Lk.2: 1-32
In those days a decree came out from Caesar Augustus, that the whole world might be numbered. 2 This first census was done being Quirino governor of Syria. 3 And all went to be enrolled, every one to his own city. 4 And Yoseh of Galil went up from the city of Natzereth the Jehudijah to the city of David, called Beth-lehem-ephrath, because he was of the house and the family of David, 5 to be enrolled with Myriam his wife, who was pregnant . 6 While they were there, the time came that she would give birth, 7 and she had her firstborn son; wrapped in bands and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn. 8 And in the same region were shepherds that were in the field, and kept their flocks during the night watches. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared unto them, and the glory of the Lord compassed them with brightness; and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear ye not: for I bring you glad tidings of great joy, which shall be unto all the people: 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David the Savior, which is the Messiah the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you, Ye shall find a little child wrapped in bands, and lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there appeared to the angel a great multitude of the heavenly militia, praising YEHWH the everlasting God and saying: 14 Glory to God in the highest, peace on earth among men; of good will. 15 And when the angels had withdrawn themselves from him into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, Let us go to Bethlehem, and let us see what has happened, which the Lord has made known to us. 16 So they went in haste, and found Myriam and Joseph, and the child lying in the manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known the word which was spoken unto them concerning the child; 18 And all that heard it were astonished at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Myriam kept all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising the everlasting God for all that they had seen as they were told. 21 When the boy was circumcised eight days, he was given the name of Yehoshu, which was given by the angel before he was conceived. 22 And when the days of purification were ended, according to the Torah, the law of Moshe, they brought him to Yehoshaleim, to present him YEHWH 23 (as it is written in the Torah: the Law of the Lord: every firstborn shall be consecrated to YHWH); offer a sacrifice according to the provisions of the ceremonial; in the law of the Lord: a pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons. 25 And there was a man in Yehoshualem, whose name was Shimeon; and this man, righteous and fearful of the LORD; he waited for the consolation of Israel; and the Spirit was upon him. 26 And it was revealed to him by the Spirit that he would not die before he saw the Messiah of Jehovah the Lord. 27 So by the Spirit he went into the temple; and when the fathers brought the child Yehoshu ‘, to do according to the custom of the law, 28 Shimeom took him in his arms, and praised YEHWH the everlasting God, and said: 29 Now, Lord, send your servant in peace, according to thy word; 30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, 31 which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples; 32 a light for a revelation to the Gentiles, and for the glory of thy people Israel.
The known temple of Zorobavel was built under the orders of Cyrus the king of Persia; therefore it is not divinely considered as the SECOND TEMPLE this title rested on the house subsequently inaugurated by Herod the Great, was in this temple Yehoshu ‘the Messiah, was presented.
Herod was the second son of Antipas Idumeu this family came to be considered yehudim, by the circumcision; this in 537 AM, after the return of Israel from the captivity.
In the thirty-seventh year after the invasion of Pompey the Roman, during the reign of Herod, in the recess, Yehoshu was born, and eight days later he was in the temple presented; as the prophet said that the glory of the second Temple would be greater than that of the first or greater than the Temple of Sh’lomom.
