I. Savior Has Born - GoodNews. vv.8-11.

ἀγραυλέω (agrauleō), live out of doors. Cognate words: ἀγριέλαιος, ἄγριος, ἀγρός

Shepherds: Low Cast, Status, NonValuable, Non Position and Rejected - Were Chosen to receive the GoodNews which will change the World.
Supposed to live outside; They take turns to watch over the sheeps.
The Angel express the manifestation of God’s Glory upon the Shepherds. Angel wanted to claim down the Shepherds so that they can understand that our Lord is gracious.

Here for the first and only time in the Gospel σωτήρ, “savior,” is used of Jesus (but cf. 1:69; 2:30; for comment on Luke’s pervasive interest in the theme of salvation see at 1:47)

Soter - Deliever - Savior
The Goodnews is that Savior has been Born. This is first and only time Savior is used for Jesus.
Christos - Messiah - Christ.
Lord - Ruler - One who commands.

There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore.
