Remembering the true reason for the season
“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2:8–14
Journey to Bethlehem is an all-new adventure at The Holy Land Experience, giving park guests the opportunity to learn about the birth of Jesus. At each stop throughout the attraction, guests are greeted by mysterious “messengers” who explain the events that led up to Jesus’ birth. They end their journey in the market of Bethlehem, busy with local villagers, when two shepherds arrive to tell of what they witnessed while “abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.” Journey to Bethlehem comes to a close with the messengers’ true identities being revealed.
While HLE is excited to offer new seasonal experiences this year, we’re also pleased to bring back a holiday favorite: Come to the Manger, a musical about Joseph and Mary’s desperate search for a room as the the arrival of their new son, Jesus, draws near.
Even our Lost and Found Agency kids show has been revamped for the Christmas season. As one of the performers has lost his or her holiday spirit, a mysterious stranger visits to share about the true meaning of Christmas and help restore what was lost.
