AbstractLuke 1:31; 2:8-20, 46-49 are illuminated by the myth of Ion as dramatised by Euripides. Apollo begot Ion on Creusa, who married Xuthus, a supernumerary parent for Ion, providing him with a kingdom. The shepherds recall the “royal foundling” myth; the manger recalls reproaches of the Old Israel—at once signs of birth and burial.
