Product Description
This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – The Birth of Jesus & The Star of Bethlehem. The total number of slides in the presentations is 58. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

For Christians, the Christmas Story is the beginning of the story of the remarkable man Jesus the Christ. It is short with little fanfare. Of the 27 books in the New Testament part of the Bible, the story is only told in the books written by Matthew and Luke, two of Jesus' followers and friends. In Matthew, the story is told in 2 out of the 28 chapters and in Luke, it is told in 2 chapters out 24. Both Matthew and Luke, finish their telling of the story with Joseph, Mary and Jesus returning to Nazareth to live.

To Christians, one of the most important things about Christmas is what 'Christmas' really means. That Jesus was not only born, as told in the Christmas story, but that, when he became a man, Jesus willingly died to take away all our sins and bring us closer to God. Then he came back to life 3 days later as told in the Easter Story.

Joseph & Mary were required to journey to Bethlehem to satisfy Caesar Augustus, recently ordered census. While there she went into labor, but struggled to find a place to birth her baby. Eventually the found a stable and Jesus was born.

A “host” of angels appeared to a group of shepherds the same night and they immediately set out to find the baby. Having seen the new baby, the Bible says "...they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them."

Unfortunately, for some the Wise Men were NOT present that night as depicted in most nativity scenes. They appeared to Jesus sometime later when he was in a house. They paid homage to Jesus and presented him with expensive gifts. Learning that Herod was seeking to kill all newborn babies, they left without telling Herod where he could find the baby Jesus.

The subject of the “Star” that guided the Wise Men to the baby Jesus has been one of fascination and speculation since His birth. Adding to the story is the incorrect way the nativity has been presented placing the Wise Men at the manger on the night Jesus was born.

During the Christmas season, astronomers and scholars, like to provide naturalistic explanations for the Christmas Star while ignoring obvious spiritual explanations. They explain the Star as some bright planets appearing all together in the sky, or it was an "exploding star," or even a “supernova.” So, the question remains; "was the Christmas Star something astronomical; that is, explainable by natural law; or was it a miracle of God?” If so, what was it?

A supernatural event did occur. There is simply no astronomical explanation which fits, without denying the account of one of Jesus closest followers, Matthew. The laws of nature DO NOT explain everything in life. There is sufficient cause for phenomena occurring all over the world that cannot be explained naturally.

Accepting an “inconvenient anomaly” may force one from embracing real truth….and even a No doubt, the explanation of what the Christmas Star was really about will continue to be debated, but the most important reason for the Christmas Star should not be missed. "When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy." (Matthew 2:10)
