Here is research on the Lesson:
In Miscellaneous Writings, Mary Baker Eddy writes: “It is most fitting that Christian Scientists memorize the nativity of Jesus. To him who brought a great light to all ages, and names his burdens light, homage is indeed due, -- but is bankrupt” (374:17).
This whole lesson is build around the concept of prophecy! Every section of the story of Jesus' birth -- the nativity, the shepherds, the wise men, etc. show Jesus to be the fulfillment of prophecy.
Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
