Nim: All of mankind had waited on Messiah for centuries and suddenly...He was with us. That's what His name means..."God with us."

Nim: The air must have smelled sweeter. The sun's light must have been brighter. Every living creature on earth must have felt an urge to bend its knee and bow its head.
