Album Notes
Why didn't Mary & Joseph go to Elizabeth's house for the birthof Jesus? She lived nearby!
Why was the town of Bethlehem so hard hearted that no private home would take them in if there was "no room at the inn?"
If the Holy family was in a dirty stable, why didn't the shepherds move them at once to their own homes?
The WiseMen came to "the house." What's going on?

In these four half-hour lectures Dr. Bailey answers these and many other questions regarding the Christmas story. These studies provide fresh understandings of the well known Biblical stories of Christmas in a way that everyone can follow

A most interesting Study!
My wife and I have greatly benefited in further understanding regarding the birth of Jesus. We have seen this CD several times and were so taken with it we wanted our own copy to use and share with others. We highly recommended this work.


Eye opening lesson on what REALLY happened at His birth
Ken Bailey is one of the greatest Christian teachers of our time. In this video he gives a clear, logical, and easily understandable lay out of the birth of Jesus, and the events that surround His birth. This is a must see if you want to gain a real knowledge of Christ's birth, who He really is, and who He came to save.

Dr. Bailey's work helps put the narrative into context
Dr. Bailey's work helps us to remove the preconceived ideas that tend to obscure the biblical narratives. Many of us tend to approach the Bible from a Western philosophical perspective and try to fit the narratives into modern day molds. This work explains the biblical narrative in a Middle Eastern cultural context where the account was originally written.


Clear View on the Birth of Jesus
I was amazed at the insight Rev. Bailey has. I always wondered how the Wise Men found Jesus in a house when he was born in a stable.
I showed the first episode at my Small Group, thinking I would just do the one but everyone was so captivated by his knowledge that they asked to do more! I have recommended this to other small goups in church. Everyone should get this video; it answers so many questions.

A true enlightened work!
This is by far one of the most enlighten works on the subject that I have ever encountered. Thanks to Dr. Bailey, one's preconcieved (or taught) notions of the birth of Jesus is put into proper perspective. Absolutely facinating!


Truth definitely gives us clearer understanding.
God has given Dr. Bailey amazing gifts of scholarship and
teaching. This presentation sent me to his site to see what else is available and wishing more was available here at CDBaby. If you have never heard what he teaches, then
be prepared to hear truth that will set you free from myth
and the traditions of man. And be prepared to be enriched by these amazing lessons.

Gripping, in its own way
Very very intersting perspective of the birth of Christ. If you think you know Jesus' birth story then you will really be blown away by this video. There are a great number of things that modern interpretations have skewed and even ruined the story. Dr. Bailey nails it on the head. Granted it's not the most exciting video, but the content makes up for the missing wow factor.
