I nice little video that reminds us that the Hallmark card version of the nativity does not always match up with the biblical account. Ultimately though, I'm much less interested in the actual historicity of the birth narrative as I am with what the writers of Luke and Matthew were trying to say theologically about Jesus and the world into which he was born. Why sheperds? Why a star? Why wisemen? Why a virgin birth? All great questions to ask as we are about to celebrate the coming of God's light once again into the world.
