This Christmas, Dr. David Jeremiah and Turning Point Ministries are releasing a new film teaching about the birth of Jesus Christ. According to CBN News, “Why the Nativity?” is a docudrama that draws from both the Old and New Testaments to tell the story of Christmas and answer questions surrounding the holiday including why certain people, places, and events were chosen by God for the birth of His only son.  

The movie is based on Dr. David Jeremiah’s book, Why the Nativity? 25 Compelling Reasons We Celebrate the Birth of Jesus, and will feature live-action scenes. According to CBN News, “throughout the film, viewers will witness powerful reenactments, including Old Testament prophets foretelling the birth of Christ; Gabriel appearing to Mary; Joseph and Mary traveling to Bethlehem; the star guiding the Wisemen; and the birth of Jesus.”


Dr. David Jeremiah shared that he hopes this film will become “an instant Christmas classic” that will be enjoyed by all generations and more to come. Through recreating Bethlehem and the areas surrounding it at the time of Jesus’ birth, Jeremiah is capturing audiences by telling the true story of Christmas and giving hope and joy to all who see it. 

Jeremiah said, “from its inception, this unique production has been designed to be shared with the whole world, for everyone from all walks of life,” adding that, “I’m confident this unforgettable journey through film will help the hope of Christmas jump out of the pages of the Bible.” 


While it is easy to get caught up in the Christmas season with all the joy it brings to the world, Jeremiah is reminding everyone of the real meaning of Christmas and why such joy fills the hearts of people across the globe. Keeping Christ at the center of the holiday is growing more important each year as many try to ignore the true story of Christmas. With “Why the Nativity?” Jeremiah is telling the captivating story of Christmas to all in a way that will expertly attract viewership, teaching more and more people about the birth of Jesus Christ and why we celebrate Christmas.
