How Your Nativity Decorations Are Biblically Inaccurate

Christmastime is here! And that means that we are decking the halls with all of our favorite decorations.

Among your decorations may be a nativity scene. We have one in our home that Dale actually purchased in Bethlehem. It stays on our shelf all year long!

But as we look at that nativity depiction, there are some pretty glaring inaccuracies if we compare it to the biblical account.

Where’s the disconnect, and what actually happened on that night? In this episode, we discuss!
