The infant is no ordinary child, as each player in the Story makes clear. The information the angel Gabriel gives to Jesus’ mother, the message of the heavenly heralds at his birth, the words of Simeon and Anna when Jesus is presented at the temple eight days after he was born, and the remarkable visit from the magi, all resonate with the same message. This infant is God come to earth. He is the promised Redeemer, the Messiah of Israel. He is the rescuer, the Savior of the world.
