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.


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


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?



VERSION DIFFERENCE: [view] The broadcast version of this episode includes a recap from the previous one.



Eugene Meltsner: But how could you believe for so long without proof? Without evidence to support your theory?
Hezekiah: Theory? You are still speaking with your mind, Eugenius! What I believe is found in the place where the mind and the heart unite.
Eugene Meltsner: And where is that?
Hezekiah: Faith.

Connie Kendall: Oh, Judah! You dropped the bucket again!
Judah: What have you done to me? Why do you fill my head hour after hour?
Connie Kendall: How should I know? Could you let go of my hand?

Benjamin: Go watch for more stars, old man!

Rebekah: Women don't have babies where you come from?
Connie Kendall: Well, yeah, but not this kind of baby!

Benjamin: This census is going to kill my business!
Eugene Meltsner: Possibly your customers, too.
