Every year when Christmas rolls around, we start seeing the Christmas story featured on cards and magazines at the checkout counter. A question then often comes up this time of year: Is the Christmas story actually historical or is it just a myth?

In this episode, Scott and Shawn discuss this big question and information presented in the gospels to address some common objections:

  • What should we make of the differences in the four gospel accounts - aren't there contradictions?
  • What about the differences in genealogies between Matthew and Luke?
  • Weren't the gospel accounts written too late to be considered historical?
  • How can we even evaluate the supernatural aspect of the accounts?

    Scholarship clearly shows that the nativity of Jesus is pure fiction. The entire Bible is actually historical fiction. Although this is the case I still enjoy the Christmas time
