The Christmas story is one of wonder, faith and hope. There are at least three misconceptions about the story.
No mention in the Bible that Mary rode on a donkey. It is logical, but is it factual?
The angels didn’t sing Glory to God in the highest. The Bible reveals that they said it. Must have been like music to the shepherds ears.
The wise men didn’t come to the stable. The holy family would have relocated by the time the wise men arrived some two years later.
The real story of Christmas is truly known when Jesus is born in a person’s heart. It’s happened to me and I’ll never be the same. Hallelujah!
“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep.” John 10:14-15 NIV
