Three Nativity Misnomers and Corrections

Derek Ouellette —  December 25, 2013 — Leave a comment

Building on Ken Bailey’s work, the three misnomers about the nativity are:

1. That Jesus was born the night Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem (not true).

2. That Mary and Joseph were turned away from a commercial inn (not true).

3. That Jesus was born in a stable (not true).

And as a bonus, I’ll add a fourth:

4. The magi arrived a when Jesus was probably almost a toddler (not true).
