A Timeless Journey

Travel to Bethlehem 2,000 years ago to be counted in the Roman Census. Hear the angels announce the birth of the Messiah. Listen as shepherds, a prophet, and wise men talk of signs and wonders. Enjoy the city alive with activity but no room at the inn. Avoid the danger and taunting of the Roman soldiers and tax collectors. See a newborn babe asleep in a manger. Experience all this and more as you walk through Bethlehem.
