Totally Mysterious Christmas! Game-Style Animation Mobile Phone Drama
I got the KFC!
I’ve got the cake!
Let’s celebrate Jesus’ birthday!
Did you know that in America and Europe they don’t eat KFC for Christmas? (In Japan, KFC is a staple Christmas meal.)
What do they eat, then?
In America, they have turkey or ham and pie, and in some parts of Europe they eat lamb.
Oh, poor Meichan!
If that’s the case, then why do Japanese people eat KFC and Christmas cake?
Uhmmm.
I got one!
A mystery text message?
Yes! Are you ready? 3…
GO!
He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment
that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. [Isaiah 53:5-6]
Snow!
Where are we?
When are we? I guess we have to wait for the angel or something?
New text message?
Oh, we have a destination… and it’s in Japan! Shimbara, Nagasaki!
I’ve been to Shimabara before, I have relatives there! There’s a big castle.
Well, I guess we should start walking.
I thought there’d be an angel again.
Good evening! Christmas greetings!
Merry Christmas!
Are you going to the Christmas festival in Shimabara?
It seems so.
Well, climb in the cart. Mou-mou-chan won’t mind the extra weight! Right?
Thank you very much.
For real! Thank you so much!
Yes, Thank you!
I’m Yamato.
Kirari!
Kaori!
Kikka!
You have interesting clothes, are you from Nagasaki?
We’re from Tokyo!
Kaori!
I’ve never heard of it, is it close?
Uh, it’s near Edo.
Edo!? That’s far! Well, glad you are here for Christmas.
Why doesn’t he know Tokyo?
Look how he’s dressed; we’re obviously in the past, probably around the start of the Edo Period
At this rate, we should get there just in time for the love-feast (communion).
What’s that?
Oh, I thought you were Christians
Well…
It is part ceremony and part dinner.
After the ceremony, everyone brings food to share, and we celebrate as a big family.
Sounds delicious!
Good thing we brought KFC!
This is Shimabara? Where is the big castle?
It hasn’t been built yet!
What’s everyone looking at?
The ceremony is starting.
The night before the Lord Jesus was killed, …He took bread, and when he had given thanks,
he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me."
Did he just say Jesus was killed?
Yes, he was crucified by the Romans.
The baby???
The infant Lord did not remain a baby. He grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and men.
Jesus lived a perfect life, without sin or defilement. He went around preaching the Good News
of God’s Kingdom, here on Earth. He healed many sick people
and performed many miracles.
But the greatest thing he did was to die on the cross.
In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me."
What does that mean? New covenant?
When Jesus died, he was acting as a sacrifice for humanity’s sin.
We know that all people have sinned in some way or another, which defiled us.
Since God is holy, He cannot make company with unholy people. Because all people are defiled, no one could help another.
But God’s Son, Jesus, came from Heaven to Earth to die and take our punishment. So that we may be made holy and reunited with God.
For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
Why would God let His Son die?
Because God loves us.
He does?
Yes! God doesn’t simply like us, and he doesn’t just leave us alone, He LOVES humanity.
“Good news of great joy for all the people!” That’s what the angel said about Jesus’ birth!
That’s why God let His Son die. But that’s not the end. After He died, he was buried in a tomb.
But on the 3rd day, Jesus rose from the dead! He proved that He is more powerful than death.
The great mystery is getting better and better.
Let's eat!
Let’s share our food!
Do you think these people will like KFC?
Of course they will! They are Japanese, and it’s Christmas!
It’s time to go! Are you ready?
Not really! But ok.
Yamatosan, we have to be going now.
Have a blessed Christmas!
Merry Christmas!
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but to save the world through him. [John 3:16-17]
It’s amazing how important Christmas really is!
Yes, but how can we celebrate now? We don’t have KFC or cake!
