Major motion pictures have depicted the story of Jesus' birth in various ways. This in-depth documentary goes behind the misconceptions about the Nativity to provide a fascinating account of the real Christmas story. Drawing on the insights of biblical scholars and historians, The Story of the Nativity looks at the traditions of Jesus' origin, including the relationship of His mother Mary and his foster-father Joseph, the Virginal Conception of Jesus, the journey to Bethlehem, the birth of Jesus in a stable, the star of Bethlehem, the Wise Men, and Herod the Great's attempt to kill the infant Jesus. Biblical scholars Jesuit Fr. Mitchell Pacwa, Dr. Timothy Gray, and Dr. Ed Sri, and popular authors Peter Kreft, Johnette Benkovic, Roy Schoeman, Steven Ray, and others reveal the facts about Jesus of Nazareth's birth and the biblical accounts of it. It also includes powerful footage from the Holy Land.
