Response to Act_of_Reparation (Reply #32)

33. I think we cannot make such firm conclusions given how little information we have

outside of the Bible. With respect to the birth of Jesus, it is perhaps surprising that
two of the four Gospels really don't mention it at all. Maybe their dogs ate their crib
notes

Of the other two Gospels, only Luke mentions the census story, the manger, and the
shepherds, and only Matthew mentions the magi and Herod. They agree mainly on
the names of the parents, the immaculate conception, and the location of Bethlehem.

You really should read them, given there are only two accounts and they are fairly
short.
