Going to Bethlehem and Christ's Birth

Christmas Scripture Study Day 5

Today we are reading the Christmas story with Mary and Joseph going to Bethlehem, the new star appearing, and Jesus being born. 


"Away in a Manger"- This is a video of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing the song at a Christmas concert (probably the devotional- about 4 minutes). It's Hymn #206 if you want to look it up as well. This one is in my top 3 Christmas hymns. Which ones are in your top 3?


Luke 2:1-7

"Gifts" by President Thomas S. Monson 


Two great ones- pick one to watch or enjoy both!

Good Tidings of Great Joy: The Birth of Jesus Christ (5 minutes)

The Nativity (about 8 minutes)
