Our planet currently supports around 7 billion human beings. That's 118 people per square mile. The average life expectancy around the world is 64. The median age is 27.6 years. It is estimated that 110 billion people have ever lived on earth.
"I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people" (Luke 2:10). This is extraordinary news for a lot of people. And in a world with so many people, all of human history came down to one human. It was one fragile infant born to one girl. In one time in history. In one region - Judea; in one town - Bethlehem. On one night, in one barn. One person born for the sake of all the people. Billions of them.
