“In Our Time” opens with three young Persian Princes, Bathasar, Gaspar and Melkon, who have come to be known as “Magi”, or “Wise Men”. They happen upon a strange constellation of stars while sailing in the waters of the Persian Gulf in early spring of 1979. The constellation is not just any ordinary constellation, but instead is the star of Bethlehem, as had been foretold by the ancient Jewish prophets thousands of years ago.
The three men return to Jerusalem where they encounter King Herod the Great, a tyrant who rules all of Israel and most of the surrounding areas of Palestine. They inform Herod of the “strange” star that they have seen in the east, and enquire as to whether he knows anything of the birth of the “King of The Jews”. Herod, in his fury and madness, secretly orders the killing of thousands of newborn boys in what has come to be known as “The Slaughter of the Innocents”. The wise men return some two years later, when they finally find the “child king”, paying him homage with expensive gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
The angel Gabriel announces to Mary that she has been chosen by God to have a child, a son whose name shall be called Jesus, and declares, “For he shall save his people from their sins”. The child Jesus is born. While attending to their flocks, shepherds happen upon the birthplace, declaring “Glory to God in the highest, peace on earth and goodwill to all men”.
Our journey continues from the birth of Jesus into his adulthood, following his ministry and bearing witness to several miracles. Many characters mentioned in the four gospels are vividly brought to life, including, John the Baptist, Mary Magdalene, The Twelve Disciples, Pontius Pilate, King Herod Antipas and his devious wife Herodias, and Gabriel the Archangel. While Jesus is enormously popular among commoners, there are many who see him as a heretic and threat. Those that are determined to put a stop to Jesus’ fanatical teaching and even the miracles he performs, conspire to bring about his death.
