Him

The baby, born in Bethlehem (which means House of Bread).
The man, the bread of life for all.

The baby, laid in a manger.
The man, nailed to the cross, giving us His flesh as food.

The baby, searched out by wise men.
The man, searching out the lost and the sinners.

The baby, offered gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
The man, offering gifts of grace without measure.

The baby, made known to the shepherds.
The man, the true Shepherd of His people.

The baby, presented in the temple for purification according to the law of Moses, which was written on stone.
The man, presented on the cross for the purification of the human race, according to the new law, which is written on men's hearts.

The baby, feared by kings.
The man, the King of kings.

Him.

The Beloved of my heart.
