Now it happened that when the angels had gone from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, ‘Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this event which the Lord has made known to us.’ So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger. When they saw this, they made known what they had been told about this child, and everyone who heard it was astonished at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds went back glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as they had been told.

When the eight days were complete to circumcise the child, he was called Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he was conceived in the womb.

Luke 2:15-21 RNJB
