Dramas and Dramatic Readings

  1. Naybon Caravan (4:05): In this humorous but thoughtful vignette, guide and caravan-leader Naybon remembers the census taken by Caesar Augustus and the two mysterious travelers on their way to Bethlehem who seemed to have a special purpose. 
  2. Synagogue Cantor (5:12): The synagogue cantor of Nazareth sets out to teach a group of Jewish children to sing and make music.  As he teaches, he tells them about a student he especially remembers – a girl named Mary. 
  3. Bridgette Baby Sales (4:34): When pregnant Mary shows up at a baby supply store, the saleswoman is eager to sell her everything she ‘needs’ to be ready for her baby.  But is Mary looking for stuffed animals, a car seat, cute outfits or a decorated nursery?  As she prepares to give birth to Jesus, where is her focus?  The message of this comical drama hits home! 
  4. Beatrice Lamaze (6:03): A birthing instructor encourages her class to slow down, focus and be well prepared – just like Mary.  Through humorous drama, this video will encourage you to slow down, be well prepared, and focus on “the baby” so that you can enjoy this Christmas season to the fullest!
  5. Bob the Travel Agent (6:10): Mary and Joseph stop at a travel agency just wanting to get to Bethlehem.  The agent is bent on selling them everything from a Caribbean Cruise to a life insurance policy, but Mary is focused on getting to Bethlehem and refuses to be distracted from that goal. 
  6. Bethlehem Shepherd (6:59): A shepherd reflects on the night of Christ’s birth and begs you to take time to delight in celebrating the birth of the Christ child.
  7. Benny Motel (5:59): Benny, the motel owner, is sick and tired of guests complaining about everything.  Why can’t they all be more like the woman from Nazareth who gave birth to a baby in the utility shed?  She was kind and joyful and didn’t complain about anything.  A powerful message wrapped up in a comical sketch. 
  8. Word of the Lord (3:19): This dramatic reading by David and Karen Mains highlights prophecy and the words of 2 Peter 1:20-21.  They emphasize the Word of the Lord to Bible figures from Noah to Mary and end with the glory of Christ and the words of John 1:14.
