The Lego Star Wars Christmas Story. Part 4

Part one can be read here.

A Long Time Ago, in a Galaxy far Far Away…

The Rebel Alliance, and the Empire decided to put aside their differences for one moment, and celebrate Christmas together by putting on a Nativity Play.  Mary and Joe have found their way to Bethlehem, and found a place for Mary to give birth. They’ve been visited by a couple of rebels shepherds already… and they have more people on their way…

Three wise men came from the east...
Three wise men came from the east…

1-2 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem village, Judah territory— this was during Herod’s kingship—a band of scholars arrived in Jerusalem from the East. They asked around, “Where can we find and pay homage to the newborn King of the Jews? We observed a star in the eastern sky that signaled his birth. We’re on pilgrimage to worship him.”

3-4 When word of their inquiry got to Herod, he was terrified—and not Herod alone, but most of Jerusalem as well. Herod lost no time. He gathered all the high priests and religion scholars in the city together and asked, “Where is the Messiah supposed to be born?”

5-6 They told him, “Bethlehem, Judah territory. The prophet Micah wrote it plainly:

It’s you, Bethlehem, in Judah’s land,
no longer bringing up the rear.
From you will come the leader
who will shepherd-rule my people, my Israel.”
7-8 Herod then arranged a secret meeting with the scholars from the East. Pretending to be as devout as they were, he got them to tell him exactly when the birth-announcement star appeared. Then he told them the prophecy about Bethlehem, and said, “Go find this child. Leave no stone unturned. As soon as you find him, send word and I’ll join you at once in your worship.”
Matthew Chapter 2

It seems the shed had enough space to bring up a baby...

9-10 Instructed by the king, they set off. Then the star appeared again, the same star they had seen in the eastern skies. It led them on until it hovered over the place of the child. They could hardly contain themselves: They were in the right place! They had arrived at the right time!

11 They entered the house and saw the child in the arms of Mary, his mother. Overcome, they kneeled and worshiped him. Then they opened their luggage and presented gifts: gold, frankincense, myrrh.

Matthew Chapter 2

Something is coming...
Something is coming…

12 In a dream, they were warned not to report back to Herod. So they worked out another route, left the territory without being seen, and returned to their own country.
Matthew Chapter 2

Seems the shed also doubled up as transport...

13 …God’s angel showed up again in Joseph’s dream and commanded, “Get up. Take the child and his mother and flee to Egypt. Stay until further notice. Herod is on the hunt for this child, and wants to kill him.”
(kinda based on Matthew Chapter 2)

They all went their own ways, and everyone lived happily ever after.
The End.

Ok, so I might have missed a few bits out.
Hope no one is upset about the idea of Mary and Joseph using a TARDIS to escape from Bethlehem.

Normal service should be restored tomorrow.
