This Christmas, Dai Woolridge has put together a two-part film re-telling the nativity story from the shepherds’ perspective.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that some of the very first people in history to witness the arrival of the Messiah were a bunch of ‘rough around the edges’ shepherds. The shepherds had an encounter that turned out to be life-changing:
‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.’
(Luke 2.10–11, NIV)
This year’s ‘Spoken Truth’ film is a twenty-first-century twist on a first-century story.
‘Jesus is good news for everybody and those who reach out to him get to be part of his family. May we be inspired by the shepherds in Luke 2.17–18, who couldn’t help but share this “good news for everybody” … with everybody. I hope you enjoy.’ (Dai)
This film is free to watch and share on social media from Bible Society platforms, and to download and share in schools or church carol services. You can use it online as part of your ministry context (e.g. in a church service), but you must not upload it separately to your own social media accounts.
