Did You Know?

Trivia:
This film combines the stories told in two different Gospels. In The Gospel According to Matthew, Joseph and Mary live in Bethlehem, but flee to avoid Herod's Massacre of the Innocents. Jesus is born, and his birth is attended by Three Wise Men. In The Gospel according to Luke, Mary and Joseph live in Nazareth, but travel to Bethlehem to register for Augustus Caesar's census. Jesus's birth is attended by Shepherds. Joseph and Mary subsequently return safely to Nazareth. Historians have taken issue with both stories. Herod's Massacre of the Innocents is not found in any other historical records. While the Romans did take censuses regularly, they differ from the census described in the Gospels in two ways: first, inhabitants were not required to return to their ancestral homelands. Secondly, men could file as heads of household, thus registering themselves, their wives, and any children they had or were expecting. Thus, it was highly unlikely that Joseph would have to travel to Bethlehem if he lived in Nazareth, much less take with him a woman so close to giving birth.See more »
Goofs:
Errors in geography: King Herod steps out on rampart in Jerusalem during one scene and a large expanse of the city can be seen (as matte painting) in background. During another scene, he steps out on same location and city background is missing (sky background instead).See more »
Quotes:
Mary:You've never really told me of your dream.
Joseph:My dream?
[pause, he is teasing her and also contemplating his response]
Joseph:No.
Mary:Please, tell me.
Joseph:An angel came to me. He told me the child within you had been conceived by the Holy Spirit and that I should not be afraid.
Mary:Are you afraid?
Joseph:Yes.
[laughing]
Joseph:Are you?

nice and simple, 2 December 2006
Author: mrweather from United States

I hadn't planned on seeing the movie after work today. It was a last minute thing. I had no preconceived notions and had read no reviews. For my family it was a nice and simple rendering of the story that is celebrated by Christians this time of year. It's a story that I am very familiar with, but the portrayal connected a few dots that I hadn't gotten after hearing the story all of these years.

For all of you who have a difficult time getting into the proper Christmas mood, this might help you get separated from the hustle and bustle of shopping madness. It did for me and will be a must see at Christmas time each and every year.
