How many versions are there of "A Christmas Carol?

I have seen at least 20 this year alone but since it came out in 1856 I thought there should be at least 2 or 3 more out there eh?

    I rather enjoy Dicken's Christmas Carol, if you haven't figured that out by now.

    There's more but I'm tired of doing this.

    The very best is Michael Caine and the Muppets with Kermit as the dutiful Bob Cratchit and Miss Piggy as his feisty wife, the Muppets do Dickens with Michael Caine as the miserly Scrooge. Musical-comedy adaptation of Dickens' classic "A Christmas Carol" featuring the Muppets. Miser Ebenezer Scrooge learns the true meaning of Christmas and reforms his heartless and money-grubbing ways after being visited on Christmas Eve by four Ghosts: his old business partners Jacob and Marley, the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. --Feature-film directorial debut for Brian Henson, the 29-year-old son of the late puppeteer Jim Henson. Brian Henson began working as a puppeteer at his father's studio at age seventeen and took over as president and CEO of Jim Henson Productions following his father's death in 1990. BB

    Quite a few. I like Scrooge the Musical the best. I can't remember the actor's name who played Scrooge but it's a good one. Of course good deeds don't erase past bad deeds. Therefore, Scrooge would still go to hell. The only solution for bad behavior is that it has to be paid for. So each person must pay for his or her sin, in hell, or there has to be a substitute. That's what Jesus Christ's death on the cross was all about. He endured God's wrath for us. If we turn from our sins and put our faith and trust in Him for our salvation, then, and only then, will we go to heaven. Jesus rose again, which proved He won the victory over sin and death, and that He was God in human flesh, just like He said (John 8:57-58, etc.).

    Source(s): Romans 3:23; 6:23; 5:8; 10:9-10 The Ten Commandments define sin. They are found in Exodus 20.

      But we are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. If forgiveness isn't found in God, Jesus His son, the why would people repent. The Son died so that we my have that chance.
