A drama documentary called Why the Nativity? is coming to theatres and streaming services to showcase the power of Jesus' birth.

Dr. David Jeremiah and his company Turning Point Ministries based the new documentary on Jeremiah's book, Why the Nativity? 25 Compelling Reasons We Celebrate the Birth of Jesus.

"I’m excited for this opportunity to bring the true story of Christmas to the world’s stage in an unprecedented and unparalleled fashion," says Jeremiah in an interview with Faithwire

A custom set was built in San Diego County to replicate the town Jesus was born, Bethlehem.

"From its inception, this unique production has been designed to be shared with the whole world, for everyone from all walks of life. We pray it becomes an instant Christmas classic with the longevity to reach new audiences with the timeless Gospel message for generations to come."

The film not only covers the birth of Jesus, but it also encompasses Old Testament prophecies of the Saviour's birth. 

"I’m confident this unforgettable journey through film will help the hope of Christmas jump out of the pages of the Bible."

The Executive Producer of the film, Paul Joiner, shares that it will have a far-reaching impact on all sorts of viewers. 

"It’s about evangelism,” says Joiner. “People are open to hearing the Christmas story, so what an opportunity it is for us to say that Christmas is more than just the fun, food, and fellowship––it is about the salvation story. The gospel.”

The premiere of Why the Nativity? will be held at Regal LA Live Theater in Los Angeles on November 18. Starting on December 4 the film will be available to view for free at Turning Point Television.
