In Depth Study Of The First Christmas Audio Cd
In this 80 minute audio CD, the Biblical account of Jesus' nativity will come ALIVE! for your family. In Diana's popular story telling style, you will examine the circumstances surrounding the miracle of the First Christmas from historic documents of Josephus, ancient rabbinic writings, modern archaeological discoveries, and more. Discover the amazing time period in which Jesus was born: the Pax Romana, the Hellenistic flavor of the ancient world, the history of the Jews up to that point, and the specific dating by the Gospel of Luke (with the controversy surrounding it). Meet the fascinating (and sometimes horrific) people of the Nativity, such as Herod the Great (of whom Caesar Augustus said, "I would rather be Herod's pig than his son!"), the shepherds of Bethlehem, the priests serving at the temple, and the people of Galilee. Learn the incredible details of the altar of incense (where Gabriel met Zechariah), the reasons the Pharisees didn't recognize Jesus when He came, the place of the Magi, and even the rabbinic belief that the Messiah would appear to shepherds in Bethlehem!
