Back to Bethlehem, Part 2
“Back to Bethlehem, Part 2” is episode #136 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Paul McCusker, and originally aired on December 15, 1990.

Summary

Connie and Eugene go into the Imagination Station and experience the birth of Jesus Christ!

Plot

Whit sends Connie and Eugene on a trip in the Imagination Station to witness the birth of Jesus Christ.

Along the way, they encounter a cranky innkeeper, several smelly shepherds, a crazy but sincere Jewish teacher, a hot-headed but romantic young zealot, a callous but romantic Roman general, and a carpenter and his maiden bride.

While the zealot and the general vie for Connie's affections, the teacher explains the strange star up in the sky to Eugene - and they both bear witness to the glory of the newborn King.

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »

Discussion Questions

  1. Whit said much of what we think about Christmas is pure speculation. Based on what the Bible says, how do you think the first Christmas might have been different than how we picture it?
  2. Bethlehem wasn't a very nice place for a baby to be born. Why was Jesus born there?

Eugene Meltsner: And where is that?
Hezekiah: Faith.

Connie Kendall: Oh, Judah! You dropped the bucket again!
