Okay, I am just sick and tired of hearing in the context of Christmas that Jesus was born in a manger.
How can one be born in a manger? It’s a feeding trough for the animals to eat from. For Jesus to be born in a manger, Mary would have had to be in the manger while He was being born. Yeah, like that was happening.
And the Scripture account doesn’t even say He was born in a manger. It says He was laid in a manger. Big, big, big, big difference.
Y’know, it doesn’t even say He was born in a stable, though that at least makes sense! All we have is that He was laid in a manger because there was no room in the inn.
And there, my friends, is my rant about Christmas.
