Bethlehem is well-known all over the world as the birthplace of our Savior Jesus Christ. Therefore there is no better way to celebrate the Christmas-story than with this attractive nativity set hand-carved by Bethlehem artisans. It is made from olive wood. Also it is one of our larger nativity sets, with a fold-out floor and 12 movable pieces.
Like most nativity scenes, this one brings together the two gospel accounts of Jesus’ birth in Luke 2 and Matthew 2. The visitors to the Christ Child in Bethlehem were local shepherds. Also pagan astrologers came from far away in the east—showing that Jesus’ coming was truly for all people!
