    A Meaningful Christmas Movie: “The Nativity Story”

    Looking for a meaningful Christmas movie? “The Nativity Story” tells of the birth of our Lord and the story of Mary and Joseph’s journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem. The film details the Biblical aspect of their testimony and the trials they faced.

    In the Old Testament, there are prophesies about Jesus’ birth, including where he would be found. The movie portrays the scriptures found in the New Testament (Matthew and Luke). It also shows the birth of John the Baptist, who prepared the way for the Lord.

    You, my little son, will be called the prophet of the Most High, because you will prepare the way for the Lord. You will tell his people how to find salvation through the forgiveness of their sins. Because of God’s tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death and to guide us to the path of peace (Luke 1:79-79).

    Mary asked the angel, ‘But how can this happen? I am a virgin.’ The angel replied, ‘The holy spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God… For nothing is impossible with God’ (Luke 1:34-37).

    I love this movie because it focuses on Mary’s perspective. She experienced so much trial and judgement when her husband Joseph found out she was pregnant. Because she was a virgin, it was hard for him to believe her fidelity. Even the townspeople judged her. Thankfully, God revealed his divine plan to Joseph and he didn’t abandon Mary.

    The Christmas story is so profound and inspirational. “The Nativity Story” shows God’s power and His word in action. It is so wonderful to see God’s word on screen and to be able to view the birth of Jesus from a unique perspective.

    ‘Look! I am sending my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me…The messenger of the covenant, who you look for so eagerly, is surely coming,’ says the Lord (Malachi 3:1).

    1. My theology teacher showed us this film a few years ago before we went on break. Mary was going into labor and she paused it, telling us that if we wanted to know what happens next, we had to attend Christmas Eve Mass.

    2. I love that movie! I love how they present Joseph and Marys relationship, but I alwys close my eyes for like the first 3 or 4 minutes. That part scares me (I have lots of younger brothers so I don’t like to think of it)!
