Hello my Friends! Today is such a beautiful day because I get to share these wonderful movies that I've watched about the life of Jesus. I invite you to watch these movies as well.

Gospel of Matthew

The Birth of Jesus the Messiah: 1

18:His mother, Mary was engaged to be married to Joseph. But while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit. 19:Joseph, her fiance, being a just man, decided to break the engagement quietly, so as not to disgrace her publicly. 20:As he considered this, he fell asleep, and an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. "Joseph, son of David," the angel said, "do not be afraid to go ahead with your marriage to Mary. For the child within her has been conceived by the Holy Spirit. 21:And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins. " 22:All of this happened to fulfill the Lord's message through his prophet:

23:"Look! The virgin will conceive a child!

She will give birth to a son,

and he will be called Immanuel

(meaning, God is with us).

24:When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord commanded. He brought Mary home to be his wife, 25:but she remained a virgin until her son was born. And Joseph named him Jesus.

2:The Visit of the Wise Men

Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem in Judea, during the reign of King Herod. About that time some wise men from Eastern lands arrived in Jerusalem, asking, 2:Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We have seen his star as it arose, and we have come to worship him. 3:Herod was deeply disturbed by their question, as was all of Jerusalem. 4:He called a meeting of the leading priests and teachers of religious law. "Where did the prophets say the Messiah would be born?" he asked them. 5: "In Bethlehem," they said, "for this is what the prophet wrote:

'O Bethlehem of Judah,

you are not just a lowly village in Judah,

for a ruler will come from you

who will be the shepherd for my people Israel."

7:Then Herod sent a private message to the wise men, asking them to come see him. At this meeting he learned the exact time when they first saw the star. 8:Then he told them, "Go to Bethlehem and search carefully for the child. And when you find him, come back and tell me so that I can go and worship him, too!" 9:After this interview the wise men went their way.

11:They entered the house where the child and his mother, Mary were, and they fell down before him and worshipped him.

they went home a different way, because God had warned them in a dream not to return to Herod.

The Escape to Egypt

13:After the wise men were gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. "Get up and flee to Egypt with the cold and his mother," the angel said. "Stay there until I tell you to return, because Herod is going to try to kill the child". 14:That night Joseph left for Egypt with the child and Mary, his mother, and they stayed there until Herod's death. This fulfilled what the Lord had spoken through the prophet: "I called my Son out of Egypt."

The Return to Nazareth

19:When Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and told him, 20:Get up and take the child and his mother back to the land of Israel, because those who were trying to kill the child are dead. Then in another dream, he was warned to go to Galilee. 23:So they went and lived in a town called Nazareth. This fulfilled what was spoken by the prophets concerning the Messiah: "He will be called a Nazarene."

In those days John the Baptist began preaching in the Judean wilderness. His message was, 2:"Turn from your sins and turn to God, because the Kingdom of Heaven is near". 3:Isaiah had spoken of John when he said,

"He is a voice shouting in the wilderness:

'Prepare a pathway for the Lord's coming!

Make a straight road for him!"

The Baptism of Jesus

13:Then Jesus went from Galilee to the Jordan River to be baptized by John. 14:But John didn't want to baptize him. "I am the one who needs to be baptized by you," he said, "so why are you coming to me?" 15:But Jesus said, "It must be done, because we must do everything that is right." So then John Baptized him. 16:After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on him. 17:And a voice from heaven said, "This is my beloved Son, and I am fully pleased with him."

Gospel of Luke

2:The Birth of Jesus

At that time the Roman emperor, Augustus, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the Roman Empire. 2:(This was the first census taken when Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3:All returned to their own towns to register for this census. 4"And because Joseh was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, David's ancient home. He traveled there from the village of Nazareth in Galilee. 5:He took with him Mary, his fiancee, who was obviously pregnant by this time. 6:And while they were there, the time came for her baby to be born. 7:She gave birth to her first child, a son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the village inn.

The Shepherds and Angels

8:That night some shepherds were in the fields outside the village, guarding their flocks of sheep. 9"Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord's glory surrounded them. They were terribly frightened, 10:but the angel reassured them. "Don't be afraid!" he said. "I bring you good news of great joy for everyone! 11:The Savior - yes, the Messiah, the Lord - has been born tonight in Bethlehem, the city of David! 12:And this is how you will recognize him: You will find a baby lying in a manger, wrapped snugly in strips of cloth.

16:They ran to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger.

Jesus Is Presented in the Temple

21:Eight days later, when the baby was circumcised, he was named Jesus, the name given him by the angel even before he was conceived. 22:Then it was time for the purification offering, as required by the law of Moses after the birth of a child; so his parent took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord. 23:The law of the Lord says, "If a woman's first child is a boy, he must be dedicated to the Lord." 24:So they offered a sacrifice according to what was required in the law of the Lord - "either a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons."

The Prophecy of Simeon

27:That day the Spirit led him to the Temple. So when Mary and Joseph came to present the baby Jesus to the Lord as the law required, Simeon was there. He too the child in his arms and praised God, saying,

"Lord, now I can die in piece!

As you promised me,

I have seen the Savior

you have given to all people.

He is a light to reveal God to the nations,

and he is the glory of your people Israel!"

33:Joseph and Mary were amazed at what was being said about Jesus. 34:Then Simeon blessed them, and e said to Mary, "This child will be rejected by many in Israel, and it will be their undoing. But he will be the greatest joy to many others. 35:Thus, the deepest thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce you very soul.

The Prophecy of Anna

36:Anna, a prophet, was also there in the Temple. 38:She came along just as Simeon was talking with Mary and Joseph, and she began praising God. She talked about Jesus to everyone who had been waiting for the promised King to come and deliver Jerusalem. 39:When Jesus' parents had fulfilled all the requirements of the law of the Lord, they returned home to Nazareth in Galilee. There the child grew up healthy and strong. He was filled with wisdom beyond his years, and God placed his special favor upon him.

Jesus Speaks with the Teachers

Every year Jesus' parents went to Jerusalem for the Passover festival. When Jesus was twelve years old, they attended the festival as usual. After the celebration was over, they started home to Nazareth, but Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents didn't miss him at first, 44:because they assumed he was with friends among the other travelers. But when he didn't show up that evening, they started to look for him among their relatives and friends. 45:When they couldn't find him, they went back to Jerusalem to search for him there. 46:Three days later they finally discovered him. He was in the Temple, sitting among the religious teachers, discussing deep questions wit them. 47:And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers.

Gospel of John

I thoroughly enjoyed writing this for all of you. Scripture is a huge part of my life and learning about the Bible is something that's very important to me.
