The Christmas Story has been told and retold for thousands and thousands of years. There have been movies made, stage productions created, and many other things to retell “The Greatest Story Ever Told.” Through all of that, many of the details have been muddled.
Remember the mean inn keeper we learned about in Sunday School? You know, the one who refused to give the poor young mother a bed to have her baby? Guess what? He’s NOT in the Bible. The Bible never once mentions an inn keeper who refused the couple a place to stay. It simply says, “...for there was no room in the inn.”
Remember the picture we always saw of Mary riding on a donkey while Joseph held the rope? Also NOT in the Bible. The Bible doesn’t tell us how they got to Bethlehem. It only says that Mary “came with Joseph.” We have no idea HOW they got there.
Remember the nativity sets that had the wise men AND the shepherds kneeling before the baby Jesus? Didn’t happen. The wise men didn’t arrive until Jesus was much older (perhaps up to two years old).
Because of all of the confusion about the Christmas Story, it is so important that we teach our kids “The REAL Christmas Story” - straight from the Bible. That is what we attempt to do in this series. Your kids will love remembering all of the details and learning some new twists in the plot that they may never have known.
