1-Did you know that Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute? Mary was a disciple who travelled with Jesus and helped support His ministry. The perception that Mary of Magdala as a prostitute is blamed upon Pope Gregory The Great in 591 when he falsely identified her with an unnamed sinful woman mentioned in the Gospels. 1400 years passed and the Roman Catholic church officially corrected its error and made her a saint!!!
To know more about Mary of Magdala there is a character cameo and a colouring page at mm.html
2-Did you know that Jesus Christ is the most important character in the Bible and more than any other person in History (His Story)? The Old Testament prophets foretold about His coming, His death for humankind. There are many incidences in The Old Testament that point to Jesus Christ as a type or symbol. Abel's lamb, Abraham's offering of Isaac and The Passover Lamb in Egypt all were types of Christ. The red cord that Rahab hung out of her window against the city wall of Jericho was a symbol of Christ. Joseph and his life as a person was a type of Christ especially as the rejected son and saviour of the nation.
There is a colouring in page of Joseph being sold to travelling merchants is at selljo.html
3-Did you know that Moses was a symbolic representation for Jesus? Moses was saved after a king ordered the Jewish babies to be killed; the same is true of Jesus. Moses parted the water, Jesus walked upon the water Moses spent 40 years in the wilderness; Jesus spent 40 days in the wilderness. Moses went up a mountain and gave an address, Jesus also gave a sermon on the mount. Moses administered the Old Covenant and Jesus administered the New Covenant.

4-Did you know that there were three supernatural acts in the event of God revealing Himself to Moses at the burning bush on Mount Horeb? It was three miracles in one. The thorny bush was not lit by anything of earth or from the sky, it was ablaze, but not destroyed by the flames and amid the burning flames was God speaking. Mount Horeb is the same peak as Mount Sinai.
There is a colouring in page of God appearing to Moses at the burning bush at bush.html
5-Did you know that Ezra the priest and scribe is ranked second only to Moses as God’s lawgiver and prophet? He is considered by many as the second founder of the Jewish Nation. Not only did Ezra help reinstate the Law and apply The Temple worship order after the Babylonian exile, he required that all the Jewish men now living back in their own land who had married apart from their own race to leave their foreign wives and children. Because they had wed with the neighbouring peoples they had joined with their detestable worship practices of false gods and idols, one of the reasons for exile from God, seventy years prior.

c Christmas v Xmas
It is a misconception that Christmas is the name for the religious observance of the holiday and Xmas is the name for the secular observance.
The X in Xmas stands for Christ.
The word Christ is from the Greek word Χριστοσ (Christos, pronounced "Kris-toss").
The X in Xmas is real the Greek letter X (chi, pronounced kie).
X in Xmas is not the same as the x used in algebra (and other mathematics).
The use of X as an abbreviation predates the birth of Mohamed and the introduction of Algebra to Europe.
The x as used in mathematics was not in much use in Europe until around the Ninth Century when Moslems began to conquer parts of Southern and Southeastern Europe.
