So You Think You Know Christmas


We all know the Christmas story. We’ve heard it, and told it to our children for years. The shepherds, the angel, the heavenly host, Mary and Joseph, the stable, the birth of Jesus . . .on and on.

But do we know the true facts about the Christmas story? Do we know, for instance, who told Joseph and Mary to go to Bethlehem? Do we know how they got there?

If you think you know the real answers to those two questions, you may be surprised.

You can probably cheat and use your Bible and hunt through Luke and Matthew and score a 100. But, why not see how many questions out of 10 you can answer without cheating. You may be surprised again.

This is not a pass/fail test. It’s not a barometer of your theological acumen. It won’t reveal your spiritual prowess. It won’t get you any closer to God. Hopefully it will just be fun to take a stab at the questions and see how you do.

  1. I look forward fo finding out how much or how little I know. Quizzes are always fun. You are right when you tell your fellow readers we all think we know the story, and share it with our kids. But sadly, that is not the case with many younger Americans who really have never heard the real story due to their secular life style. That’s why I love “A Charlie Brown Christmas” so much. When Linus goes on stage and quotes Luke’s story of the Birth of Jesus, that is the only time millions of Children ever catch the real meaning of Christmas.

    • Amen, Ronn. I agree completely. I’ve seen and been with some of those precious children who only hear about Jesus like that, and from missionaries, both international and local.
