New Video Features the First Christmas Spirit

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released a new Mormon Channel video which features a unique message about the Christmas season.

The video portrays the story of the early life of Jesus from the perspective of his father, Joseph.

The Church’s introduction to the video asks, “What would it have been like to raise Jesus Christ? Joseph was a humble carpenter when God gave him the responsibility of being Christ’s father.

"Even though he was often overwhelmed, Joseph was always loyal to God and to his Son, Jesus Christ. How will we follow his example this Christmas season?”

Watch the seven-minute video which concludes with a message from President Thomas S. Monson, president of the Church:
