Dr. Ibex has a wonderful series on all things birth of the Baby Jesus. He is dispelling myths and taking no prisoners. http://dribex.tumblr.com/
Today’s in particular is called The Mythology of the Mean Innkeeper.
I very much appreciate his diligent pursuit of the truth of God’s Word, and I really like this last paragraph:
“I am not trying to be α cynical ‘Grinch,’ and yes, our own Nativity set does contain the Magi! I am just asking us all to base our beliefs on the actual text of Scripture and not on centuries of religious paintings and a translation that could be improved!”
I agree with him. This series continues to be helpful, but in spite of this I couldn’t help enjoying the video below. Made me laugh. I think he would enjoy the humor of it as well. :)
Have a blessed Christmas celebrating the birth of the King of kings and Lord of lords!
