Storyline

The coming of a savior, the Messiah, is foretold by prophets, announced by angles and realized in the birth of Jesus, only to opposed by worldly power in the person of King Herod. The King Is Born dramatically weaves together the key events surrounding the birth of Jesus. It places them in Biblical context, beginning with Simeon's vigil at the temple in Jerusalem to see the Messiah and continuing with the Angel Gabriel's visit to Mary. The search for lodging in Bethlehem introduces a humorous innkeeper and leads to the wondrous event surrounding the birth in a humble stable, including the visit of the shepherds and the journey of the wise men. We visit the royal palace to learn of a very different reaction by King Herod. As Herod's troops ride through Bethlehem, bent on killing every male child, Mary Joseph and the baby Jesus escape to Egypt. The video ends with their return to Nazareth, where a young Jesus works with his father in his carpentry shop, gaining wisdom and special gifts. Written by Nest Family Entertainment

The King Is Born ***(5/10)***
11 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The King is Born" has one subplot. That is with Simeon and when he blesses the baby Jesus at the temple. The main story tells how Jesus was born in Bethlehem and the flight to Egypt. On the way, we are introduced to the shepherds, the three wise men, and the evil King Herod. For some reason not fully explained in the short, one of the shepherds wants to go to Zarahemla before the angel tells the others to go there. The cover told me it was a story about "God's Grace, Love, and Mercy," although I think this lesson applies more to Christ's ministry than his birth. In the end, I recommend this for a very slow Sunday watch.
