Bethlehem Marketplace

A family tradition for us is to go to the Bethlehem Marketplace at Southeast Baptist Church. If you've never been, you really should plan to go next year. The Marketplace is a walk-through drama re-enacting how the village of Bethlehem might have appeared the morning after the birth of Jesus. It features characters in historically-accurate costumes such as Roman soldiers, prisoners, tentmakers, weavers, carpenters, merchants in shops, census-takers, and more. There are always many different types of animals as well. Here are a few pics from our trip to Bethlehem...
