I love sharing resources at this time of year to help spark conversations in your home about why we celebrate Christmas–the birth of Jesus Christ. This weekend I got to watch a video about just that. The Promise is an animated musical about the birth of the Messiah. The music is moving, and the animation is flawless. It is neither cheesy nor cheaply made. I think it would be a sweet addition to your little one’s stocking this year. In fact, it is one of the movies Bradley and I watched for our 2013 Christmas Bucket List!
ABOUT THE STORY
The story begins when Mary and Joseph are engaged and continues with a faithful adaptation of the Gospel of Luke. Gabriel appears to Mary to reveal God’s plan to save the world. Mary visits Elizabeth and Zechariah and learns of John’s impending birth. The dilemma Joseph faces when he discovers Mary is with child is especially heart-wrenching. The characters must each choose to trust in God’s faithfulness despite some very unusual circumstances.
