This is one movie on the story of our Lord's miraculous birth and escape from the claws of the heinous Herod. What really impresses me is the depiction of Mary and Joseph, who both as a young couple, stand before a unbelieving world for their faith in God and what He had told them. Their relationship with one another also grew as they faced the problems together as one, and would be the prime model for marriages.
As I watched the Holy Child delivered, I wondered what would my response be if I was transported back to that time when our Lord Jesus Christ was born. Then was God coming in flesh, fully God fully man. And if I may bring it further, fully child fully God at that point in time. Who then can comprehend the mind of the Most High, who took the form of lowly man out of love? God chose the things that the world despised for His glory. Praise be to God, for He alone is our salvation.
"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." ~ Isaiah 9:6
