12 Voices of Christmas | Memories That Last

Our family loves to find things that draw our hearts closer to Jesus during the weeks before Christmas. We would like to recommend one of those to you—The 12 Voices of Christmas by Back to the Bible.

At least fifteen years ago, maybe more, we listened to the 12 Voices of Christmas when Back to the Bible did it as a special radio broadcast in December. We enjoyed it so much that when they came out with it on a CD, we purchased that.

With the CD, we began a new family tradition. We would find an available evening in December to drive around Kansas City looking at Christmas lights while listening to the 12 Voices of Christmas. We continue to keep that tradition even though all our children are now grown.

Hearing the whole story of the events from Scripture surrounding Christ’s birth with an emphasis on Him being the Messiah from the perspective each of the key players, fills our hearts with joy.

For a period of time, The 12 Voices of Christmas wasn’t available at all, but now Back to the Bible has it as a free download.

Trusting in Jesus,
Teri

is given: and the government shall be upon
his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful,
Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.”

  1. Oh, thank you so much for sharing! Can’t wait to listen to it with my children!

    It really is awesome!

  2. Thank you so much! I had never heard of this before and am looking forward to listening. Just curious, do you happen to know the best order to listen to the recordings? The download (audio) page has them in a different order than the pdf script download.

    Don’t worry about the script. You should listen in the order on their site. I’ve verified that from what we have.

  3. Thank you so much! We are looking forward to listening to these audios. Just a hint for the previous comment. If you rename them by placing a number in front of the name they will be in order. (1 Gabriel, 2 Zacharias, 3 Elizabeth, etc. Then if you burn the file, they will be in order. I would think it would be better to listen in order. Thank you again!)

    Yes, thanks! That sounds right.

  4. I just listened to a few clips as I was downloading them ~ and YES: they are best listened to in order. As the narrator moves on from one voice (track) to the next, he mentions the previous voice and it carries forth as a complete story. Looking forward to listening to this with the children! Thank you for the link! And thank you to “K” above who shared a great trick on getting the file to burn in order by placing a number in front of each file!

  5. Thank you, Sarah, but I think K misunderstood my question a bit. On the audio download page you linked Gabriel is first. However, there is link on the top of that same page that takes you to a pdf transcript where Zacharias is first. I was a bit confused by that and was just wondering which order is correct: the audio page or the transcript. Thanks again!

    Don’t worry about the transcript. I did verify the order on their site is the proper order, so starting with Gabriel. I listed the proper order in the post too!

  6. Thanks so much, Sarah! That helps a bunch! Thought I’d print the transcript so the kids can read along.

  7. Thanks so much for sharing this! Can you tell me how long the entire series runs start to finish…do you listen all at once or in shorter chunks?

    I’m guessing 2 hours total. But very easy to listen to each person and stop if you want to.
