The Nativity Story

You are probably familiar with The Nativity Story, a movie that was released a couple of years ago and is now available on DVD. I have been a fan of this movie for some time. It is a great dramatic re-telling of the story of Jesus' birth. It is fairly true to the Biblical text and very cognizant of the cultural mores of the day. I highly recommend it. (In fact, I showed the movie this week in the Bible classes I've been teaching at Gallup Christian School.)
The movie does a good job emphasizing the humble circumstances into which Jesus was born. I especially enjoy the way the movie portrays the emotions of Mary and Joseph.
Great movie. Watch it, if you haven't seen it already.
