Celebrating Christmas Video
This clip adds to the cultural celebrations of Christmas which are typical in Britain, some consideration of the special aspects of the festival for Christians. Advent, a four week countdown with advent wreath and 5 candles, symbolises Jesus as the light of the world. Nathan uses an Advent Calendar that is about remembering Jesus, not just scoffing chocolate every day! We see a Nativity play at a primary school, where children take the parts of characters in the story to make Christmas story feel real: they sing ‘Our light has come! The Son is born today.’ The special Christian Christmas celebrations include ‘Midnight Mass’ or a communion service very late on Christmas Eve.
Introduction To Jesus Text
Who was Jesus? What do we know? We know that Jesus lived more than 2000 years ago, in Israel, at that time an outpost of the Roman Empire. He was the son of a carpenter. He spent three years travelling locally, teaching people about God. Eventually Jesus was put on trial and executed by the Romans as a criminal.
