 We who are Christians are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). __________

The birth of Jesus and surrounding events as TV news would cover it today.

A mad tyrant Herod, a turbulent and restless people under Roman occupation, mass executions -- all are under the shadow of the greatest astronomical event in 800 years, at a time when astrology was the cutting edge of political science. 

Here is a program that sheds new light on the events and circumstances surrounding the birth of Jesus. 

This is no nativity-play treatment of Christís birth, but an attempt to set it in the real political and social context of the time, based on the best available sources and research.

The program is presented in a news format as if the events surrounding Christís birth were happening now. 

The incidents are reported by on-the-scene correspondents and political analysts, just as television presents world news today. 

The reports discuss the threat to Herod's succession and the danger to him if he fails to control this province. 

The report on the tax census discloses the fiscal oppression of the people. 

Also documented is the instability caused by putting a whole country on the move at a time when gatherings of more than three people could be seen as subversive.

This enlightening presentation
