These are the questions I answered tonight about Christmas, Bethlehem, the birth of Jesus, Joseph & Mary, the gospel accounts and more.

***************************************************

1. Tell us about the four Gospels and why they tell different stories.

2. How does each of the Gospels deal with the genealogy of Jesus?

3. Which Gospels tell Mary’s story and which one tells Joseph’s story?

4. How did Mary and Joseph get to Bethlehem and how far was it from Nazareth?

5. Did Mary experience pain in childbirth and how was Jesus born?

6. Did St. Joseph assist Mary in childbirth? As a mother I am curious who assisted Mary?

7. Is there evidence for or against the date of December 25 for Christmas? Why do we celebrate his birth on December 25?

8. Since December is winter in Bethlehem the shepherds would not be out with sheep, correct? So the December 25 can’t be the real date of Jesus’ birth, correct?

9. The Archangel Gabriel announced the birth of John the Baptist and of Jesus. When he announced it to Zechariah who asked “How will that be?” and he was punished. Mary responded the same way and she was blessed. Why was Zechariah punished and not Mary?

10. Did Mary carry Jesus to full term and how was he born?
