Three Hundred Nativity Scenes From Around The World:
A Tour Through The Gospels of Luke and Matthew

For the twenty-third holiday season, The Episcopal Church of the Epiphany presents an exhibit of nativity scenes from around the world from Saturday, December 8 through Sunday, December 16 – open on select days. From the elegant to the eccentric, the birth scenes are sculpted in materials ranging from carved wood to volcanic ash.

In the church narthex and gallery, there will be a special exhibit of nativity scenes that highlight the differences between the birth story as told in the Gospels of Luke and Matthew.

The two gospels, St. Matthew and St. Luke differ in the way they tell the birth stories. St. Matthew’s gospel accentuates the history of the Old Testament people. St. Luke’s gospel presents the story by using ordinary people who participate in the unfolding drama.

Each of these nativities is accompanied by scriptural quotes and hymn texts. Additional birth scenes will be exhibited in the Parish Hall.
