Baby Jesus comes to Jasper in time for Christmas Eve as Marla Renner inspiringly lays him in his cradle at the community’s Nativity Scene she helped fund at the courthouse, (shown right).
The baby Jesus had not originally been put in the manger when the Nativity was set up as Renner planned on adding the Christ figure closer to Christmas Eve.
For Christians, the birth of Jesus is told in the Biblical Gospel of Luke 2:11 “Today in the City of David a Savior has been born to you. He is Christ the Lord.
