The Untold Christmas Story

The Untold Christmas Story

I am betting that many of you have nativity scenes in your house. Nativity scenes are one of my favorites. They convey the hope and love of God. Everything is picturesque. Mary and Joseph hovering over the manger looking down in awe at the new born Lord. Shepherds and angels gathered in the background. Sheep, donkeys, and oxen quietly grazing on the hay. To the east are the wise men, making their way first to Jerusalem and then to Bethlehem. It is peaceful and quiet. And, right in the middle of it all, a giant red dragon looking to kill the baby Jesus.
