THIS IS AN INTIMATE PORTRAYAL OF OUR SAVIOUR'S BIRTH IN THAT IT HELPS OUR 21ST CENTURY MINDS UNDERSTAND THE VERY FIRST CHRISTMAS. A FIRST CENTURY POINT OF VIEW FROM THE STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE UNDER THE ROMAN GOVERNMENT'S HEAVY BURDEN TO HEROD'S JEALOUS KILLING OF BABY BOYS TO SECURE HIS REIGN. YOU WILL FEEL WHAT THE JEWISH FAMILIES MAY HAVE FELT. YOU WILL SEE HOW GOD USED THE DIFFICULTY OF THE LONG ,BURDENSOME TRIP TO BETHLEHEM TO BUILD TRUST IN JOSEPH AND MARY'S RELATIONSHIP. IT WAS A TIME TO LIVE, BUT A FAITHFUL HUSBAND AND HIS YOUNG BETROTHED VIRGIN STOP THE TEST TO CHANGE THE COURSE OF HISTORY FOR OUR SAKES.
I absolutely LOVE this depiction of the story of Mary and Joseph and their relationship. I particularly love the actor's wonderful portrayal of Joseph and his sensitivity to Mary's surprising pregnancy. He is very gracious and respectful to her parents and to Mary as well.As they begin their journey which is part of the focus of this film they slowly grow closer together and become as one. Mary particularly observes little things about her betrothed on their journey that awakens her affection and respect for him as Joseph in tenderness and love displays his protection and concern for her and their beast of burden.From a human standpoint it is easy to see where Jesus would have learned sound upbringing from these chosen two and considering the times and the circumstances I have no doubt the depiction presented herein is not far off the mark.
