Tom Houston looks at a great story with a great cast. The political forces of Caesar Augustus, Herod and the travellers from the east, the religious establishment in Zechariah, Elizabeth, Anna and Simeon, The outcast prophet - John the Baptist, the ordinary people - Mary, Joseph and the shepherds and also the Gospellers - Matthew and Luke.
