A teenager, seemingly pregnant outside of marriage. An old woman, miraculously pregnant. A betrothed man gets a visit by angel, and takes his pregnant bride on a trip to Egypt. A king, so corrupted by his own power, that he orders the killing of all the boys who might be his predicted successor. A troupe of star-gazers from the east, seeking a royal birth. The circumstances of Jesus birth are anything but story-book. Why would God send his son into this mess?
