What would it be like to witness firsthand the events surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ? Actors who took part in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' (Mormon) Life of Jesus Christ Bible Videos project had this opportunity, if only in a vicarious way.
The Church has produced a video with several of these actors talking about what it was like to be a part of the Nativity scenes.
"I think the most touching part of the Nativity is the Nativity itself, in the stable at the birth of Christ," said Savannah Stevenson, who plays Mary. "And when the shepherds come and visit her is this beautiful moment, which I hope the film captures, where they come to worship Christ. It's really moving, so amazing to be in that scene, a scene that you read about in the scriptures and have read about for years. To actually play my part in that is really incredible."
