It’s Not Luke 2


Hollywood’s newest “Jesus film,” The Nativity Story, is based on the true account of Jesus’ birth. But it’s also fiction. Viewers meet a devout virgin who suddenly finds herself “with child” and a hard working Jewish tradesman who discovers that he’s engaged to a pregnant girl whose body he has revered and reserved for a time yet to come. Wholesome family entertainment? We expect so, but check our website and read Luke 2 just before (or after) viewing. Appreciate the good, but discern and discuss those things that are not true, as should be our normal course.

For additional information about this film and its accuracy, see A Review of The Nativity Story.
