  • Common Misconceptions about the Christmas Story; CIU professor takes a biblical look | Columbia International University
    includes an inn keeper who has no rooms to offer directing Joseph and Mary to a stable out back Meanwhile under the tree the figurines show Jesus now born and in a feeding trough of that lonely stable surrounded only by his parents While CIU professor of New Testament and Greek Dr David Croteau says it s reasonable to believe that Jesus was born in a stable it is more likely Jesus was born in the house of a relative because a better translation of the word inn in Luke 2 7 is guest room So rather than being turned away from a hotel and forced to a barn it is likely Joseph and Mary were unable to stay in the guest room of a relative s house Croteau explained And instead they were offered a section of the house where animals were brought in for the night and Jesus was placed in a manger or feeding trough carved into the floor Croteau also says it is unlikely that Mary and Joseph hurried through the night and just barely made it to Bethlehem before Jesus was born as some movies portray He points to Luke 2 6 that says And while they were there the time came for her to give birth This is stated in such a way as to indicate that Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem found a place to stay and then Mary gave birth Croteau said Luke 2 7 explains where they were staying This makes it less plausible that Jesus was born in a stable because there was no urgency to the birth as described in Scripture Croteau says Christmas carols such as We Three Kings of Orient Are can be misleading He says the magi who visited Jesus were not kings there is
