Retrace the footsteps of the Holy Family as they make their way to Bethlehem to witness the birth of the messiah in a documentary filmed entirely on location in Egypt, Israel, and Jordan and based on the comprehensive research of Griffith Observatory historian John Mosely and religious scholars Pail Maier and Father Benjamin Fiore. From the arrival of the Three Wise Men at the birth site of Jesus to the true meaning of their gifts, the lost years of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus, and the Holy Family's efforts to escape King Herod's murderous reach, this documentary probes the questions that have lingered in the minds of Christians and bible scholars for centuries.
