Back to Bethlehem, Part 3
Summary↑Jump back a section
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.

- 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?
- Bethlehem wasn't a very nice place for a baby to be born. Why was Jesus born there?
- At the end of the episode Whit breaks the fourth wall after having recited a verse about the birth of Jesus.
Connie Kendall: Well, it's not like I said yes.
Judah: Then you are wiser than I am!
Benjamin: I have cows that are wiser than you!
Judah: When will I stop being rescued by women?
Connie Kendall: You're wrong Benjamin, you're in the middle of a miracle and you don't even see it.
Connie Kendall: Eugene, are you crying?
Eugene Meltsner: I'm not crying. It must be my allergies. All the hay in that stable.
Connie Kendall: Oh Eugene.
