First coming

George Bush in Bethlehem --

It's been a -- it's been a moving moment for me and the delegation to be here at the Church of the Nativity. For those of us who practice the Christian faith, there's really no more holy site than the place where our Savior was born.

Elementary theology question: which is the more important festival, Christmas or Easter?

Easter, because that's when Jesus rose from the dead. The miracle of the Resurrection and all that. God became human, suffered as a result, and then defeated death. The essence of the Christian faith.

It didn't happen in Bethlehem.
