About Andrew Peterson… “…What I wrote is a concert that tells astory. There’s no speaking–only songs, some of which are intimate,some epic, some humorous, all with a purpose, which is to convey thetrue tall tale of the coming of God into the world. What makes thisbunch of songs unique is that I wanted to remind (or teach) theaudience that the story of Christmas doesn’t begin with the birth ofJesus. Many people tend to forget or have never even learned that theentire Bible is about Jesus, not just the New Testament. So themusical begins with Moses and the symbolic story of the Passover(Passover Us) and works its way through the kings and the prophetswith their many prophecies about the coming Messiah (So Long, Moses)to the awful four hundred years of silence before God told Mary she’dbe having a baby (Deliver Us). After the song called Matthew’s Begats,which lists the genealogy of Jesus, the story picks up in morefamiliar territory with Mary and Joseph and the actual birth (It CameTo Pass, Labor of Love). The final song is called Behold, the Lamb ofGod, which ties together the Passover and the beauty and scope of thestory…” – Andrew Peterson
