To Us is Born (a Christmas musical short)
Editor’s note: Perhaps the greatest story in human history is the story of the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. This short musical film, created several years ago, depicts the early part of the sacred Christmas story when Mary tells Joseph of the angelic visitor, and he receives his own angelic visitation confirming the truth of her words.
Watching the video made me reflect on how God uses ordinary people to do His extraordinary work, on the reality of angels, on the power of faith, and on the blessing of prophecies of holy prophets that helped people know of the Savior’s first coming, and prepare us for His Second Coming.
Thanks to Charles Cranney, one of the Mormon producers of this short Christmas musical film, for sharing it. Mary (Joy Gardner) and Joseph (Dallyn Bayles) are played by musician/actors who performed in “The Savior of the World” a musical production of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, performed at the Church’s Conference Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.
You can hear producers’ comments on this version of the video. Read more about how this short came to be under the “about” section.
