Summary of Scooter and the First Christmas Story
(Luke 2: 1-21)
Scooter hears snippets of a story, knows he has heard this story before, but doesn’t remember where. The story gets a little weird because as he is explaining the story, he asks questions. Questions??? Someone is questioning the Bible??? Questions like: What does an angel look like?? How did Mary know it was an angel she was talking with??? How did Joseph know he was visited by an angel??? How far is it from Nazareth to Bethlehem???? How long it take them to get there??? And why did they need to go???
Remember, Scooter doesn’t realize that this is the story of the first Christmas. When he finds out that this is the story when Jesus was born, he becomes more serious. He says his poem, Happy Birthday Jesus and then everyone joins in to sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.
