The Lesser Characters of Christmas | Wednesday, Dec. 9, 1 p.m.
We know all about Mary, Joseph and the Baby Jesus. But what of the lesser characters of Christmas? There's Elizabeth, the mother of John, and Elizabeth's doubting husband, Zechariah. And what about Anna, the prophetess, and Simeon—both of whom were supernaturally appointed to meet the infant King at the temple? These less well known names offer powerful life lessons. We'll meet them up close in The Lesser Characters of Christmas, a documentary with provocative drama vignettes and interviews from Israel.

In a 1-hour special broadcast Haven wants to shine the light for listeners on our only hope at Christmas: Jesus. Many have called the book of Isaiah the “fifth gospel” because – though it’s found in the Old Testament – this prophet of God had a uniquely clear vision of his coming Messiah.
