Without a doubt, one of the most well-known stories from The Bible is
"The Nativity"-- the story of the birth of Jesus. Of course, this only goes for Christian Bibles, not Jewish ones (so, Old Testament, not New Testament). This may explain why, while so little has been featured in the BOYS' LIFE series from the New Testament, this story was featured 8 times, starting all the way back in December 1953 (just a little over a year after the series began). Although, not since 1964-- 49 years ago. (I'm sure Christmas was more than dealt with in the rest of the magazine.)
Please note that the 1955 version is rather... "unusual". In addtion, I'm also including a bonus from 1959, the story "All Through The Night", as well as a bonus from 1967, "The Origin Of XMAS".
I believe the 1953 version of this was the only genuine Bible story
in BOYS' LIFE that was 2 full pages long!
