I'm 57 years old and my wife is 50. We married September 7 of this year. I proposed to her when the men of my bible study crashed her bible study this past May. I had my bible study leader read to the group how during biblical times a Jewish man would betroth himself to his bride. How he would declare the covenant he wishes to make with her, how he would pour wine and present the cup of his covenant to her and if she picked it up and drank from it she was saying yes to him, all these things I did and yes she picked up the cup and said she would join in covenant with me and be my wife. When we saw this happening in your story it brought us to tears.
We will be encouraging friends to purchase your DVD and we will be sharing your story with many.
Thank you for your GREAT work, well done!!!
Grace and peace in Jesus,
This is the Birth of the Messiah...and caution: if you are expecting more...like the life of Jesus as a boy or even the flight to and from Egypt, then you will feel that it ends abruptly, but it is outstanding till then.
Music is great. The production value of animation is excellent (even if figures are all elongated). The singing is marvelous. The Scriptural integrity is good.
I have one pet peeve of most nativity depictions: Jesus was born in a house, not a stable or a cave. Likely the house of his relative (the reason for Joseph going back to his family home). And if this seems a bizarre notion to some, it is not some liberal non-sense but simply a correction of one poorly translated Greek word. The word translated "Inn" is better translated as guest room or even guest lodging. So, what was full that night was the guest room of his family's home, so Jesus was born in the main living room (or a two room home) where, at night, any family livestock were also brought in-doors. so one could hope that such a new production would show Jesus being born in a house of one of the relatives... something almost all scholars agree on now (and was first posited way back in the 1890's by Greek scholar Plummer and now many current translations follow). But old traditions die slowly, I understand.
So, this is pure joy to view. It is also Granddaughter approved. :)
Enjoy this new Christmas Classic. Oh, my wife (from Texas) says this is the music from a performance done yearly done there someplace. Can't recall where.
