First Church Coral Springs is preparing for Bethlehem Revisited. Because of some weather issues, the congregation lost all the plywood from previous Bethlehem Revisited presentations. The congregation spent some money to buy new plywood and will have a nice presentation this year. From December 9 through 13, visitors will be able to what Bethlehem was like when Jesus was born. Members of the congregation have done research over the years and learned about daily life in the ancient Middle East. Bethlehem means House of Bread in Hebrew and there will be a bread shop in the city. There will be a total of 17 shops in the recreated Bethlehem including papyrus, metal, olive oil, honey and others. There will be Roman soldiers who will act like occupying soldiers. There will be live animals and the family of Joseph, Mary and Baby Jesus. About 12,000 people will attend the event.
