7. According to Matthew, who showed up on the night of Jesus’ birth?a. Shepherds keeping watch over their flocks by night b. An angel and a multitude of the heavenly host c. The prophet Simeon and the prophetess Anna d. Ten lords a-leaping e. No one.
Note: another trick question – in Matthew’s story, no one witnesses Jesus’ birth at all; he simply says Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king (2:1) with no details. It’s only Luke who tells the story of Mary and Joseph coming to Bethlehem from Nazareth for a Roman census, finding no room at the inn and being forced to give birth in a stable, attended by humble shepherds and a host of angels.
