This is a 25 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Religion - The Christmas Story, Part 4 - Jesus Early Childhood. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides of the presentation as you need to.
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.
