Song: It's Christmas
Wise Man 1: Hi, I am a wise man. A real wise guy. This big guy here. He's wise too.
Wise Man 2: Hi, We study the stars and we have spotted a very unusual star. We are here to help reenact and narrate.... The very first Christmas. Christmas is all about C-H-R-I-S-T and that spells Christ.
Wise Man 1: We are in the now, telling the story of the then. We have been traveling from the east for a very long time. We have great gifts for the New born King. We want to honor Him with gold, frankincense and myrrh.
Wise Man 2: Now imagine camels, a dark starry night and dirty feet with blisters singing on our long journey. Remember... We will be traveling at least two more years.
Song: Follow the Star
Shepherd: Hi, I am a shepherd. I am out in the field watching the sheep. I am in the now.... telling the story of the then. All us shepherds were out watching sheep when something nearly scared us to death.
Angels appeared from nowhere......Imagine the whole sky lighting up and the sheep running in fear and one of us yelling "what in the world is that?" .....We were shaking like this. SHAKE Then the angels said.......
Angel: Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
All ANGELS SHOUT; Glory to God in the highest, Glory to God in the highest ........
AngelsHi: We are the angels in the now...well you know
Shepherd: We know and you're telling the story of the then.
Angel: That's right how'd you know?
Shepherd: Everybody knows that.
Angel : Oh
Shepherd: Now we are going to go check things out in Bethlehem. Imagine climbing up a big hill and asking directions while we are moving our sheep along. And here we are worshipping the new born King. We found him in a stable.
Song: Away in a Manger
All: Lu 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
Joseph: Hi, I'm Joseph
Mary: And I'm Mary and this is baby Jesus -
Angel: And the scripture was fulfilled - In the Then!
Mt 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name JESUS; for it is he that shall save his people from their sins.
And we celebrate the birth of our Savior on Christmas day. In the Now!
Song: On Christmas Day
Song: Ring Out The News
Wise Man 2: Remember us, we are the wise men.....We are still traveling in the then, so Imagine sleeping on a sandy bed, and eating interesting food. Imagine long discussions about the stars and very tired legs.
Wise Man1: But we are telling you the story in the now. As we look to the star remember that Jesus is the light of the world. He came into this world and learned and understood our feelings. He suffered and understands human pain. But Jesus never ever sinned. He was perfect yet gave His life so that you could know peace and forgiveness.
Song: Where There's Light There's Hope
Wise Man2: We have gifts of gold, and valuable spices and perfume. Gifts of royalty for the New born King. And as we look to the light we do not fully understand that this King will one day die for the world.
Wise Man 1: Jesus was and is a gift to the world, for He is alone is the way of salvation to all who believe. He gave and He's still giving.
Wise Man2: And all the wise men and women of this world should give to others and to God, because to love is to give. After all Jesus didn't have to die for us.
Song: To Love is To Give
Wise Man2: Hey, can I ask you a question?
Wise Man: Yea! go ahead.
Wise man 2: Do your feet hurt?
Wise Man 1: No, because I'm living in the Now.
Wise Man 2: Yea, it can be painful living in the past.
Wise Man1: I prefer the Now, cause all my sins are under the blood. I don't like desert travel and I prefer a mattress.
Wise Man 2: You are very wise. Speaking of living in the now. See our Christmas star. Well that star represents the light and Jesus is the light of the world. The Bible speaks of Jesus as a Star in
(2Pe 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: ) Now, when a person believes and puts their trust in Jesus. Jesus the light of the world is born in their heart. It's like a personal Christmas...Jesus not only came to die for us, but He came to live in us and He came that we could live.
Wise Man 1: Every Christmas we are reminded of why Jesus came and how much He loves us, but we really can't understand Christmas until Christmas happens in our hearts.
Song: Christmas Isn't Christmas
Shepherd s Yell: Guess What?
Everyone Yells: What?
Shepherds Yell: It's Christmas!
Song: It's Christmas
