Do you think you know the real Christmas story and can
separate the fact from the fiction? Are your recollections based on scripture or
merely what you have come to believe through your teachings? You may be surprised.
The events surrounding the birth of Jesus have been retold so many times and in so many ways, through poetry, plays, books and movies that the true events have become distorted. The various misconceptions about Christ’s birth show the need to always test everything we hear against the Holy Bible, God’s Word, no matter what the source, and no matter how old the traditions and doctrines are. The Bible is the final authority.
