A really lovely set of 5 NESTING Doll from Russia painted by the Russian Artist Olga Obicheva. The largest Doll is 17.1 cm (6 3/4 inches) tall. All of the dolls are painted with Nativity scenes and each UNIQUE and not to be repeated again!! The Nativity of Jesus, or simply The Nativity, refers to the accounts of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth in the Gospels and in various apocryphal texts.
The New Testament provides two accounts of the birth of Jesus: one in the Gospel of Matthew and the other in the Gospel of Luke, while other early nativity accounts, namely Justin Martyr's and that of the Protoevangelium of James, appear to harmonize them. The birth narratives of Matthew and Luke have some elements in common. They both relate that Jesus of Nazareth was the child of Mary, who was betrothed to Joseph, a descendant of the Biblical King David. The narratives also present the conception, preceded by an angelic annunciation, not as the result of marital relations, but of the power of the Holy Spirit (Virgin birth of Jesus).
Meanwhile, the Gospel of John is silent on the nativity, as is the Gospel of Mark, which most textual critics consider the earliest of the canonicalgospels. Some scholars see the Gospel accounts of the nativity as different, conflicting narratives while others defend the historicity of the birth narratives, noting the distinct perspectives of the Evangelists. The remembrance and re-enactment of the Nativity in the Christian celebration of Christmas signifies their belief that Jesus is the "Christ" or Messiah promised by the Old Testament and the Incarnation of the Logos or second person of the Trinity. The main religious celebration among members of the Catholic Church and other Christian groups is the Church service at midnight on Christmas Eve or on the morning of Christmas Day. Four other dolls are painted with Beautiful Angels.
