PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a bundle of 4 highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – The Story of Christmas in Four Parts. The total number of slides in the presentations is 103. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

The Christmas Story is one of good news and great joy, but it is also a short one. There are 27 books in the New Testament part of the Bible, but 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. Christians believe that Christmas was only the beginning of the amazing life of Jesus.

The Christmas Story begins when a teenage girl called Mary received a visit from an angel who told her that she will give birth to a very special baby! Having found out that his Mary, was having a baby (and not with him) Joseph wonders what to do. But God sends an angel to reassure Joseph as well.

The angel Gabriel is God's special messenger angel. On several occasions in the Bible he is given the job of coming to earth to give important announcements and tell of special events. So, it was Gabriel who had the amazing job of telling Mary that she would be the mother of Jesus, the king of the universe! It's also highly likely that it was Gabriel was the angel who spoke to Joseph regarding the birth of Jesus.

Included in the Christmas Story is the story of Mary and her cousin Elizabeth, a much older woman who just found out that she too was having a much longed for baby. This baby turned out to be John the Baptist who was God’s forerunner to prepare the country, and the world, for the coming of Jesus.

Elizabeth learned of her pregnancy through the visit from an angel. Doubting message of the angel, Zechariah was struck unable to speak and perform his priestly duties. The encounter between Mary and Elizabeth provide richness to the Christmas story: Elizabeth bless Mary and Mary sings a song of praise known as the “Magnificat.”

Zechariah’s tongue was eventually loosened upon the birth of John. He then offered a beautiful prayer, a prophecy and a blessing for John, contributing greatly to the Christmas story.

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 Christmas story does not end on the night Jesus was born. As part of tradition, he still had to be presented for the naming ceremony 8 days after His birth and Mary had to participate in a cleansing ceremony. It was during this time that they met Simeon and Anna, 2 devout people who had longed to see the Messiah.

In the meantime, Joseph had to protect his family from an enraged Herod who decreed that all children less than two years old had to die. Guided by an angel, Joseph and family fled to Egypt. They stayed in Egypt until Herod, who by this time had gone mad, died. Returning, they settled in Nazareth, to avoid the wrath of Herod’s son, Archelaus who was even more cruel than his father.

Joseph, Mary and Jesus lived in Nazareth until Jesus started his teachings, fulfilling another prophesy in the Old Testament of the Bible.
