The scene is set in ancient Nazareth, where the people live in poverty, oppressed by the heavy taxes and iron hand of King Herod. Herod himself lives in fear of a prophecy that foretells the coming of a great king, and is constantly tightening his grip on an already terrorized land.
Mary is a young, virtuous, fun-loving girl whose family arranges her marriage to Joseph, a man she hardly knows but who promises to provide for her. Mary is unwilling, but her rebellion is soon eclipsed by a greater fear when the angel Gabriel appears to her and informs her of her destiny as the mother of Jesus. When Herod decides to take a census in order to find the Messiah foretold in the prophecy, Joseph and Mary set off on the difficult journey to Bethlehem.
Filled with heart, joy and hope, this telling of the Christmas Story will inspire your family in your celebrations of the birth of Jesus.

- The Nativity Story by Sue on 1/8/2013
I saw this movie for the first time during the last two weeks of my Bible Class before Christmas. It touched me so much that I bought a copy for my husband and I as soon as I could. The acting was superb, the setting was most authentic. It was so inspiring and moving, I know we will continue to share it with family and friends. This is a MUST HAVE for every Christmas season!
- Great by Heather on 11/29/2012
Very good film quality, great acting and lines up with scripture in the Bible.
- Wonderfully done. by by Jen on 9/2012 on 9/17/2012
This movie was wonderfully done and most enjoyable to watch. My kids liked it so much they asked to watch it every year! MY KIDS! You know those pre-teens that seem to complain about much and like less.
If they felt Gods love through this beautifully retold story I knew it was a hit!

- Great Movie!! by Margo on 12/22/2011
This movie brings the Christmas Story more into reality. Unlike, the Passion of the Chrsit, this movie does not come across as being influenced by Hollywood.
