Now in those days, Bethlehem was filled with wickedness of divers sorts, and robbers prowled about the streets by night. One of these coming upon the young man, called his companions, and they set on him, and beat him, and after they had stripped him of his wealth, dragged him without the walls of the city, and left him. It chanced that shepherds, passing with their flocks, had compassion on him, and went to him, and bound up his wounds, and nursed him, saying, "Come with us, thou young man that the city hath cast forth.

A strong holiday number
17 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

A film story of the birth of Christ. It begins with a feast scene in the city and shows how a young man, filled with remorse, goes out with the shepherds in the hills. The night scenes, wherein the star appears, were very appealing. A fine spiritual atmosphere is achieved by this film and it is an excellent offering for the Christmas season. The story leads up to the birth of the child in the manger, and various biblical quotations of an appropriate nature are shown. A strong holiday number. - The Moving Picture World, December 27, 1913
