    That’s a terrific song. And the video is well done, but I thought it was too easy going, or too simple and soft. I then went and read this portion of truth:

    “The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! This is he of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who ranks before me, because he was before me.’ I myself did not know him, but for this purpose I came baptizing with water, that he might be revealed to Israel.”……..The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples, and he looked at Jesus as he walked by and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. Jesus turned and saw them following and said to them, “What are you seeking?” And they said to him, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come and you will see.” So they came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour. One of the two who heard John speak and followed Jesus was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means Christ). He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “So you are Simon the son of John? You shall be called Cephas” (which means Peter).” John 1

    This is such a powerful truth of how Jesus and the Father are sovereign in gathering their sheep, whom Christ would die for, and they love.
    There will come times of heartwrenching pain as well. But see how Jesus calls His disciples.

    Something to ponder I thought.

    Thanks for the video

    Thanks Justin for this video post. God Bless Bob, Sovereign Grace and Chris. Please continue to make the gospel of Jesus Christ available to all. We will never outgrow the need for the Gospel in our lives.

  3. Excellent and touching!

    Love the presentation, love the clear articulation of the Gospel, and love the music. I only wish that we could move beyond iconic “Sunday School” style images (a wooden nativity scene stable, obviously white people, etc) for these kind of things, and try to at least somewhat line up with what is historically sure.
    I hate to be this guy, but, what the heck? It’s not like we don’t know what nationality Mary and Joseph were, and it’s not like we don’t know what a “stable” during that time period looked like, and it’s not like we don’t know that a “cross” was less “cross-shaped” and more “t-shaped”, and yadda yadda yadda.

    Bravo to the artists behind it and their technical expertise, but pffffftttt to perpetuating an overly sentimental view of the Bible narrative.

    Just me? Okay.
