Bethlehem: Beyond the Christmas Story
by Day of Discovery, Jimmy DeYoung & Bonnie Keen
People continue to be drawn from all over the world to the little town of Bethlehem—the place where Christ was born. Although the birth of Jesus Christ took place more than 2,000 years ago, the message of God’s love will go on forever. In this Day of Discovery presentation, you will tour this fascinating, modern city where the amazing events of Christmas began. This may be your only chance to see the place where Jesus was born. Ironically, Bethlehem is now a city controlled by the Palestinians and it is not safe for tour groups today.
Join hosts Jimmy DeYoung and Bonnie Keen as they take you to key locations throughout Bethlehem—from Manger Square in the heart of the city to the shepherds fields. Follow along as the story begins with King Herod and unfolds to reveal the true Messiah and King of the Jews, Jesus Christ.
Gain a better understanding of the compassion God had for the world by giving us the gift of His Son. And see the impact of “Emmanuel,” “God with us,” throughout the city of Bethlehem today.
