After King Herod hears about the birth of a “new king,” he directs his soldiers to slaughter all children under the age of two living in Bethlehem. Because of this, Joseph must take Jesus and Mary and escape to Egypt. Joey, along with two other young shepherds, David and Luke, has befriended the Holy Family and they want to leave with Joseph, but he can’t wait long enough for the boys to sell their flocks. Herod’s soldiers could arrive at any time! Though the Holy Family left the boys behind, they vow to follow. They don’t find Jesus, but in high adventure they do rescue a teenage slave girl who is owned by an evil Egyptian innkeeper. Follow along as Joey tells this ancient story to his modern-day friend, Josh, explaining how he was actually there, and help Josh determine if Joey is a ghost, spirit, or angel . . .
