The Christmas Story: How Would You Tell It?

When a story is told time after time, literally for centuries, it can get a bit distorted—the facts as presented are not quite as accurate as they could be!

So let’s see how you do in catching the “myths” of Christmas!

What do you think? Did Mary ride a donkey to Bethlehem?

The Bible does say Mary was with Joseph—no mention of a donkey!

And what about an “innkeeper” declaring there was no room in the inn? There is no mention in the Bible of an innkeeper.

Here’s another! Were there three kings on camels at Jesus’ birth?

Maybe? Matthew’s gospel mentions the magi, but does not mention the number or how they got there.

The fact is, there is much that the Bible does say about the birth of Jesus in the gospels of Matthew and Luke.

Read it for yourself!
