A series of stories written by an unknown author many years ago, and published by the American Tract Society. The present electronic copy was made for us by Tara Walker from a very old antique book in the Editor/Webmaster's personal library.
It is well worth the reading. It tells of the first Bible reference to Bethlehem and then goes on to tell several interesting stories of people and places connected in some way with Bethlehem and her children.
After leading up to the climax through several chapters, chapters 8 thru 10 of the little book deal with the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Read it, enjoy it, and use it.
Following is a short excerpt from chapter 10 --- "His body was wrapped in a winding-sheet, and laid in the sepulchre cold and pale in death. But the grave could not hold him, for by his own immortal energies he burst the bands of death, and rose triumphant, like a God.
"See him again after his resurrection. He meets his disciples, and sympathizes and talks and eats with them; and then leading them out as far as Bethany, he ascends in radiant majesty, a God confessed! God has gone up with a shout! The Lord with the sound of a trumpet! Sing praises unto God; sing unto our King, sing praises."
"All hail the power of Jesus' name,
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown him Lord of all."
