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?
