The Journey: the oxen

The Oxen:
The oxen were regarded as very valuable animals to have back in Christ's day. Think of Solomon's temple, and how the oxen were used to hold up the baptismal font; and still, to this day, in many temples they are underneath some of the baptismal fonts to help hold them up. The significance of that is that they represent the twelve tribes of Israel.Oxen were used to bear the weight of their owner's belongings. The pioneers used oxen to help carry their belongings across the plains into the great Salt Lake Valley. Oxen were used to help haul the stones to the temple block.

Now, when we think of oxen, they will have a more special meaning to us. The oxen were one of the first to welcome the newborn King. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, the Lord.
