Here is the Christmas story as you have never experienced it.
You'll feel like you are back in Jerusalem at the time of the
Messiah's birth. Bethlehem Year Zero presents the events of
2000 years ago as though they were breaking news today. This
is no nativity play treatment of Christ's birth but an attempt
to set it in the real political and social context of the time
based on the best available sources and research. A mad tyrant
Herod, a turbulent and rebellious people living under Roman
occupation, mass executions - all are under the shadow of the
greatest astronomical event in 800 years, at a time when astrology
was the cutting edge of political science. Although the news
is presented as happening now, we have real political analysts
and on-the-scene correspondents who discuss the threat to Herod's
succession and the danger to him if he fails to control this
unruly province. The culmination of this story is Herod's genocidal
murder of 22 Bethlehem infants.
