“Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2: 1-3 (NIV)
Central Presbyterian Church initiated “Bethlehem Revisited” in 1997 as a full representation of life in Bethlehem when Christ was born. It includes replications of homes, shops and other facilities authentic to the time period. Costumed characters act out the roles of merchants, clergy, soldiers and other inhabitants. Camels, donkeys, goats and other animals are part of the event.
Today it is a community project with several churches, businesses, organizations and individuals contributing. Bethlehem Revisited has become one of the Dallas-Fort Worth areas’ major tourist events during the Christmas season and is a wonderful way to remind us that Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
Bethlehem Revisited is located on approximately two acres behind Central Presbyterian Church on North Jackson Street and is open the first two weekends in December on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights from 6-9pm.
During the event, Central Presbyterian Church is open to the public and features live holiday music in our historic sanctuary.
As you approach Bethlehem you are invited into the church to experience music, the Lord’s Supper quilt and the hospitality of the membership.
**In the event of heavy rain, Bethlehem Revisited will be cancelled. Please check our web site home page or Facebook page for announcements, as well as the Waxahachie Convention and Visitors Facebook page.**
