“I feel like I can relate the most to Joseph. While I’m not a guy, I can relate to him because he had a hard time believing Mary. It’s hard not to judge people.”

“I believe I related most to Mary. I felt very bad for her because Joseph had not believed her when she told him she was pregnant with the Messiah. Joseph was about to become her husband and he doubted her loyalty to him and suspected her of being with someone else.”
That would be painful.
... the shepherds
“I identified with the shepherds. They were so happy when they realized that the angels were there to tell them, the lowly shepherds, about the news of the king. God found favor with the least of the Jewish culture. I love the way that shows God’s love.”
Imagine a world where everyone — even the poor and the outcast — would be treated with respect.
For the shepherds “to believe that someone so exalted could be found in the lowliest of places takes great faith.”
