The gritty truth of Christmas told in a rap remix of a classic Christmas carol God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.
This remix of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen unpacks the Christmas story in a way you won't have heard before!
So often at Christmas time, we're told the familiar, child-appropriate, story. But there's much more to the Biblical account than the classic nativity play shows us - we may be unaware of the danger, the suspense, and grittiness that surrounded the birth of Jesus.
This Christmas carol rap explores some of these details to show that God’s plan to rescue helpless humanity was truly extraordinary.
