Herod is hunting for Jesus, wanting to kill him. Joseph and Mary run across the border to Egypt to protect the child from Herod's destruction. Herod is so angry, he kills every little boy he can find that is about Jesus' age. The people weep. Jesus' arrival as perfect love unleashes a heap load of hate and fear. Those in charge get even crazier and more dangerous. How can we stand with Christ and Christ's kingdom against a leader with a fragile ego and a lot of power?
