Thankful for this movie. It was a wonderful depiction of the culture and time of the birth of Christ. It was a biblically accurate depiction of Luke 2 with the exception of Mary not being excited about being betrothed to Joseph. That part did not take away anything from the movie to me. The makers of this movie did a great job providing a quality film for people wanting to see a movie about the Nativity. Enjoyed it!
I shared this movie with my ladies' Bible study group today and they loved it! It is such an eye-opening portrayal and it always moves me to tears as I realize what Joseph and Mary faced and how God's plan for redemption through the birth and death of His son Jesus Christ was fulfilled in such an amazing way. Share this with your children, your friends, and family; but read Luke 1 through 2:20 and Matthew 1 through 2:18 before you watch.
