There Is No Nativity Scene In The Bible, No Three Wise Men At A Manger, And No Stable… Even The Camels Are A Stab In The Dark


1 — There was a house, not a stable.

2 — There were some wise men that came but no one knows how many.

3 — No one knows what they were riding. It could have been horses or camels.

4 — They were wise men but no mention of them being kings.

5 — No one knows what color their skin was but given the location and the known skin color of the people who lived there at the time we can guess it most likely doesn’t match 90% of the nativity scenes in circulation.

This means that theists are fighting in court for secular art to be displayed in government facilities.

This is what the bible actually has written about this event:
Matthew 2:1-12King James Version

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,

And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.

And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.

12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

  1. Check Luke 2:7 that refers to Mary laying Jesus in a manger.

    • This is true but not representative of the nativity scene since it was at a house, not a barn.

      Luke 2:7
      New International Version
      7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.
