The true meaning of Christmas beginning with the angel
Gabriel's visit to Mary and the miracle of John the Baptist. Recount events leading to Jesus's birth and safe return from their flight to Egypt.
Each Christmas my family gathered at my Grandparent's where we celebrated Christmas. Uncles, Aunts, kids, dogs, and the much needed help in the kitchen all enjoyed the fellowship. On Christmas Eve each one of us was expected to perform something in the "Christmas Program". This could be a song, a reading of the Bible, a poem or whatever as long as it related to Christmas. I went on to become a musician and from this tradition have put together this narration with a contemporary soundtrack in hopes that your family, or church can enjoy a "Christmas Program"

A more in depth Bible study is presented in The Indictment Of Christ which recounts with narration and music the events leading to the crucifixion.
