Course Description

The “Real” Story of Christmas: Re-Examining the Nativity from the Biblical, Historical & Jewish Cultural Perspective

Each Christmas Season Americans are inundated with images of the “Traditional” Nativity story. In films, plays, pictures, music, and art, the manger scene is replayed countless times. Family Nativity sets and Christmas greeting cards portray familiar images of shepherds, wise men and the infant Jesus (often curiously depicted as a smiling, blond, blue-eyed toddler!) Amazingly, much of our “Hallmark Card” imagery, though sweetly beautiful, is never found in the actual Gospel narratives. This class will glean the facts from the fancy and attempt to present the Christmas story from a strict Biblical, historical and first-century Jewish cultural perspective. We promise that the final result will remain just as beautiful.
