Nativity : Sessions 1 - 6

Nativity session 1 The journey

Session 1: The Journey

Mary and Joseph journeyed from Nazareth to Bethlehem for the census, the official counting of citizens. We begin our preparations for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany.

 

Session 2: Meet the Shepherds

In the Bible the shepherds hold a very important place. Abel was the first shepherd, he was slain because of the pride of his brother Cain. Jesus Christ called himself the Good Shepherd.

Nativity session 3 A Star

Session 3: The Star
The star that appeared in the sky attracted the wise men from the East. The star was a sign to show the wise men where to find the Messiah (Savior). The Messiah was promised to come through God’s chosen people, the Israelites. Most of the world was unaware of the Messiah and his coming or the promise of his coming. When the three wise men saw this star, which was different than the rest, they were curious and started to follow it. They began to see that something important was about to happen.

Session 4: The Arrival                                                                         

Mary and Joseph have arrived in Bethlehem. The town was very busy because of all the people arriving for the census. The people of the town were so occupied with the concerns of the day. They were unable to recognize that they had the opportunity to make room for the birth of the Messiah, possibly in their own home.

Session 5: The Birth of Christ

On Christmas Eve we celebrate the great news for which the entire world was waiting. All the preparation during Advent is centered on this night. A Savior has been born for us, he is the King of Kings born in a stable. He came so we may have life and have it to the fullest.
