22. The Christmas Story.

The First Nations Version of the New Testament tells the story of Mary (Bitter Tears) and Joseph (He Gives Sons) journeying from Nazareth (Seed Planter Village) to Bethlehem (House of Bread) for a census at the orders of the Romans (People of Iron). Unable to find lodging, Mary gives birth to Jesus in a sheep cave. That night, shepherds witnessing a great light see spirit-messengers announcing the birth of the “Chosen One”. They visit Mary and Joseph, then spread the news about the child’s birth.
