DVD Bethlehem: Beyond the Christmas Story
How like God to choose the small, insignificant city of Bethlehem as the birthplace of His Son, Jesus Christ! There, beneath the brooding brow of King Herod the Great’s mountain fortress, the true King of the Jews was born to a young couple in the humblest of circumstances.
Join Bonnie Keen and Jimmy De Young for an inspiring and thought-provoking look at Bethlehem, past and present. Meet Dr. Victor Batarseh, mayor of Bethlehem. Visit the Church of the Nativity, the Caritas Baby Hospital, and Beit al Liqah, the city’s first and only playground. And discover why Bethlehem today is a model of coexistence for Christians and Muslims. Explore as well the ruins of Herodian and the rolling expanse of the shepherds’ fields, where a host of angels once filled the night sky. Search with Jimmy De Young for the lost Tower of the Flock, and discover the surprising way in which it pointed to the birth of Jesus.
This Day of Discovery DVD will deepen your appreciation for the miracle that unfolded in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago, and lives on today in hearts throughout the world.
