This year the Bahamas Post Office has released a set of four bright and vibrant stamps in an abstract style, portraying The Baby Jesus, lying in a Manger.

According to Biblical Scriptures, The Book of Luke proclaims that during the time that Jesus was born there were shepherds in the field attending their flock, when they were given instructions by an “Angel of The Lord”:

(KJV) Luke 2: 8-12

[8] And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
[9] And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
[10] And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
[11] For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
[12] And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
