Synopsis & Links…
The Star of Bethlehem – In the gospels, the Christian scriptures recount extraordinary events on a cosmic level at the time of Christ’s birth – events that rivaled anything in written astronomical history. One event in particular involved the rise of the ‘Star of Bethlehem,’ a star heralding the arrival of the son of God. The hour-long documentary The Star of Bethlehem explores the historical data behind this miraculous event and the resonance of it through the centuries. (The Star of Bethlehem documentary website)
The Twelve Words of Christmas – It’s the greatest story ever told. Completely unforeseen, yet long awaited was the voice of God breaking through the darkness and four hundred years of silence with the cry of a baby. And not just any baby, the gift of God. God’s people, having waited generations for their Creator to reveal Himself, never would have imagined that rescue and redemption would come in the simple, vulnerable form of a child, a baby born under the radar and into the chaos– announced by twelve words that changed history and brought hope to humanity. That’s the message of Christmas, God with us, full of grace and truth. And no one on earth is too far from His love. No one beyond His reach. He’s at work in your life, even in the midst of the chaos, and promises to bring you through. Merry Christmas. The Savior is here. (Louie Giglio’s church website)
The Nativity Story – In Nazareth, a town oppressed by the devastating taxation practices of King Herod, a teenage girl, Mary, is told by her parents that they have arranged for her to marry Joseph. Distraught by the idea of marrying a man she hardly knows, Mary takes refuge in a grove to collect her thoughts. There, she is visited by an angel, who tells her that she has been chosen by God to bear his son. Despite the public scorn from an unwed pregnancy, together, Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem for a census mandated by the King. It is here, with a great celestial event revealing his prophecy, in a history-defining event, that Jesus is born.
