The Angel of the Lord appears to Mary, announcing the birth of a child, which shall be called the "Son of God." Led by the light of the strange new star, the three wise men of the East journey to Bethlehem in search of the holy child, whose birth has been foretold to them. They are followed by a large retinue of servants and a train of camels, donkeys, sheep, etc., forming in all an impressive caravan. The wise men and the shepherds enter the lowly stable and kneel at the feet of Mary, who holds in her arms the new-born babe. Joseph stands near and watches the touching scene. Through the lonely Egyptian desert Mary and Joseph flee to a place of safety to preserve the life of the infant Jesus. Arriving at the famous Sphinx, Mary finds shelter for the night, while Joseph collects wood for the fire. The doctors and sages are engaged in a learned discussion, when Jesus appears. They listen astounded at His words of wisdom. Mary and Joseph, who have been seeking their son, arrive and lead the child away. The holy family works at their daily occupations--Mary at the spinning wheel, Joseph and Jesus at the carpenter's bench. Joseph is teaching the boy his trade. The guests are seated at the table, enjoying the festival, when it is discovered that there is no more wine. Jesus commands the servants to bring jars of water, and performs His first miracle by turning the water into wine, after which all present do him homage. A group of women is gathered around the well, filling their jars with water. The last arrival is a woman of Samaria, notorious for her wicked character. Christ appears to her and grants her forgiveness for her sins. A multitude of people is gathered around Christ to hear him preach. At midday He takes five loaves of bread and two fishes and feeds the assembly. The people throng to the city gates and await the entry of their Saviour. When He appears riding on an ass, they greet Him with loud Hosannas and wave palm branches.
