Product Details


Join us as we "turn back the clock" to a time long before the first Christmas. As the clock ticks and the years pass, we hear the stories of Isaiah and Zechariah. We watch with amazement as the old, childless couple, Zechariah and Elizabeth, are blessed with the birth of their son, John. We gaze in wonder upon the scene as Mary receives the news that she is chosen to carry God's Son into the world. And we look with tenderness upon the manger scene as Jesus, the Messiah, is born in a humble cattle stall in Bethlehem. Both charming and humorous, 'Twas the Year Before Christmas is the perfect choice for church children's choirs, Christian schools or Sunday schools. Flexible and easy to teach. Approximately 20 minutes.
