This engagingly written and stunning visual celebration brings readers closer to our savior and explores what's fact, and what's mostly fiction about Jesus Christ.
The story of Jesus' birth is one of ancient prophecies, glorious angels, simple shepherds, mysterious kings, a humble and righteous young couple, and a baby who would come to be known as the Savior, the Son of God, the Prince of Peace. Drawing from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, the reader is swept into the world of Roman occupied Galilee two thousand years ago, and discovers why Mary and Joseph had to journey to Bethlehem, even while expecting a baby. Commonly held myths about the Nativity are dispelled, and fascinating insights into Mary, everyday life in Jesus’ time, and angels are woven throughout. This book draws readers into a time, a place, and a life that would forever change the world.
