“You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” (Luke 2:12)

A manger is a feed trough for animals. The word is related to the French manger, to eat. If you were to attend a French-speaking eucharistic service, as the priest or minister placed the morsel of bread in your hands he would say, “Prenez, mangez.” Take, eat.

The name Bethlehem means House of Bread.

Join these two thoughts and we see that Mary placed her newborn son, the Bread of Heaven, in a common feed trough for the whole world to feast on. Already Christ was beginning to feed the multitude in order that, in the words of the Book of Common Prayer, “our sinful bodies may be made clean by His body, and our souls washed through His most precious blood.” No ordinary human being does this. Christ does because He is very God, born of a virgin. “For My flesh is real food and My blood is real drink” (Jn 6:55).

The manger was the place of the First Supper. The guests at the Last Supper were fishermen and townsfolk; the guests at the First Supper were shepherds. Before one word of the New Testament was written, even before the incarnate Word had spoken one word, these illiterate shepherds received the revelation of the gospel.

Pan Benjamin topic
In ancient Israel, it is said they wrapped lambs and put them in the stone troughs to sacrifice to cover sin at the hill with the tower- migdal eder.

Twice a day, swaddled like fragile wine and laid in a manger. The shepherds knew the sign. Not a king to be throned.

Goes right to the heart of the curse of Benjamin the scribes know well.

Cataclysmic events caused living stone abodes to become dead stone abodes. With its after effects on the minds of man and all living things.
