Description
The Herodian. At the time Jesus was born, this huge and magnificent palace built by Herod the Great dominated the landscape and cast a shadow over the tiny village of Bethlehem. Ray Vander Laan takes us on a tour of the ruins of this palace, helping us to see the huge rooms, gardens, baths, and towers as they once were. Then he takes us into the caves in Bethlehem below, those dark, sooty, sheep-trampled stables where the true King chose to be born.Traveling to other historical sites in Israel, Ray examines the contrast between the achievements of one of the most powerful kings of Palestine and the humility of the Messiah born during his reign. In the process, he gives poignant and dramatic insights into the real story of Christmas, stripping away the traditions to show the cultural and political circumstances of Jesus' birth -- and the power of his coming.
