ABOUT THE BOOK
Don't you love the joy of Christmas? But do you know about the sorrow? Join us as Joseph and Mary share how they fled to Egypt to save their son. When we remember Jesus' birth, let's not forget that Jesus was a refugee. Jesus was a Refugee is based on that unsettling bit of the Christmas story in Mathew 2:1-23. This never makes it into the end of year nativity play. So, why tell the escape to Egypt story to children? Simply because it is a Jesus story and it mirrors the story of 70 million people including 25 million children around the world who have been forced from their homes.
