Greatest Heroes and Legends Of The Bible: The Nativity


For more than 40 years, Charlton Heston has been captivating audiences with his thrilling portrayals of Biblical heroes such as Moses in “The Ten Commandments.” Now, sit back and relax as he shares with you and your family his passion for Biblical literature and his unique insights into these timeless stories of faith.

It’s been called the greatest story ever told, and with good reason. For all Christians, the story of Christmas—the story of Jesus’ birth—represents a new birth of hope for humanity, but it has also attracted millions of non-Christians because of its great beauty. Now, with this animated film you can reintroduce your family to this classic Biblical tale. “The Nativity” is one of twelve programs in the Greatest Heroes and Legends of the Bible series. This program features all-new animation, an introduction by Charlton Heston, and “Simon & Gimmel—Your Faithful Guides,” two animated characters who lead viewers through the story and make it accessible for all ages, especially ages 4 to 11.

Dove Review

This is a terrific, animated movie about the Nativity. The famous Charlton Heston introduces the film, commenting on the special gift of God’s Son during that first Christmas in Bethlehem.

The story is Biblical, featuring the Angel of the Lord and the three wise men and shepherds. It makes it clear that Jesus’ birth was a night to never be forgotten. We are happy to award this wonderful movie our Dove Family Approved seal for all ages. “The Nativity” shows you the night when hope arrived on Earth!
