New Flock TV Christmas Special Treats Viewers to a Fresh Retelling of the Beloved Nativity Story
ATLANTA, Dec. 5, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — The good news
of Christmas is not about decorations, deals or midnight mall madness,
it’s the miracle of the birth of Christ and two teenagers who had the
courage to do God’s will. Flock TV, the online Christian television
network, presents the Christmas Story Special — a program that depicts
Mary and Joseph’s journey leading to the divine birth of Jesus Christ.
The Christmas Story Special airs during the month of December on www.flocktv.org.
Christmas Story Special is directed by Nate Bernard (SkyRocket Studio)
and stars JuliAnna Briscoe (Mary) and Nathan Hudson (Joseph). It
intertwines biblical scripture, historical context and insightful
commentary from Fuller Theological Seminary, Luther Seminary and Seton Hall University professors to make the nativity story relatable to everyone.
“It is very important to remind people of the real reason we celebrate Christmas: that God loves us so much that He gave us the ultimate gift —
His son, Jesus Christ,” explained Seth Longtin, executive producer and
founder of Flock TV. “We want to be a positive influence in the
entertainment industry and create programming that touches the heart of
every person who tunes in to one of our programs.”
Flock TV was
launched in June 2013 and is already gaining traction. The network
reaches nearly two million viewers, and its episodes have an average
audience of 300,000.
The Flock TV Christmas Story Special was
produced in association with SkyRocket Studio. The network extends a
special thank you to Dr. Joel Green, Fuller Theological Seminary
Associate Dean for the Center for Advanced Theological Studies and
Professor of New Testament Interpretation; Dr. Sarah Henrich, Luther
Seminary Professor, New Testament; Dr. Daniel Kirk, Fuller Theological
Seminary Associate Professor of New Testament; and Dr. Dianne Traflet,
Seton Hall University Associate Dean, Assistant Professor of Pastoral Theology, Founder and Co-Director of the Institute for Christian Spirituality.
