I did the review because I love that it is a story about the birth of Jesus Christ.And would make a wonderful Christmas gift for my little girl and for my readers.I also love that it is a musical cartoon and that it has wonderful music in it.
The Promise: Birth of the Messiah is much more than just a musical retelling of the Birth of Jesus Christ.The music is very beautiful.The musical is about people in the Story were just ordinary people, like all of us.Just going about their lives one day at a time. Joseph and Mary’s betrothal was so loving it made me cry. Joseph cared for Mary,who was about give birth to the Messiah.This weighed heavy on him. Zechariah and Elizabeth relationship was a wonderful example of what a marriage should be like.They were both touching and amusing to me.Zechariah voice was mute while he awaited the birth of his son John the Baptist. I loved the shepherds faithfulness and response to go to the manger was so very beautiful.I always wondered what it would of been like to have been Mary raising the Messiah, the Savior of the world, and knowing He is the Son of God.I caught a glimpse of it near the end of the film that was between Mary and baby Jesus.There was humor, drama, music, and more. The animation was wonderful, gorgeous and we will enjoy this DVD every Christmas with our family.
I very much enjoyed seeing the Temple come to life and to see how they worshiped God back then. I am a artist and just loved seeing the different architecture and the colors in each scene.This DVD made the Bible come to life for us.
We Give The Promise: Birth of the Messiah
