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
The 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.About Flock TV
