Christmas Eve – The Misnomer of an Overcrowded Inn

By Brian C. Stiller
Retold by Christmas pageants, reminded by carols and pictures replenish what we think happened at Jesus' birth. I know it so well I hardly need a sermon, picture, movie or song to remind me of a pregnant Mary riding a donkey, about to deliver; a village with inns filled to capacity; a kindly innkeeper finding a stable for rest; shepherds arriving at a barn to welcome the Christ-child. The overall narrative has it right, but the core assumption is so wrong as to miss an essential part of the story. (A link to this page will be included in your message. )
