Over 2,000 years ago, God set a beautiful scene in motion that changed the entire world. We know the players well—Mary, Joseph, the Baby, the angels, and the shepherds. We have to wonder and ask the question, “Why the shepherds?” Why did God choose random men in the middle of a field to share in one of the most important events in history? Who were these men, and what role did God give them? Join us as we dive into their account of the event that saved the world and gave redemption to the lost.
For 400 years, prophets were silent. Can you imagine the surprise the shepherds received one evening when an angel announced the birth of a very special baby? Keeping Watch will unfold the true meaning of Christmas through the eyes of an ordinary shepherd who struggled to find his purpose in life. Through song and drama, this program connects the babe in a manger to the reason why Jesus, the spotless Lamb of God, was sent as the final sacrifice to make salvation possible.
