2 In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2 This was the first registration and was taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 All went to their own towns to be registered. 4 Joseph also went from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to the city of David called Bethlehem, because he was descended from the house and family of David. 5 He went to be registered with Mary, to whom he was engaged and who was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for her to deliver her child. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth and laid him in a manger because there was no place in the guest room.[a].2.7 Or their room
Note: There is nowhere that indicates that Jesus was born in a barn, surrounded by barnyard animals when you read the passage in Greek from the closest (oldest) to the original texts.
8 Now in that same region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for see, I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: 11 to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah,[b] the Lord. 12 This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host,[c] praising God and saying,14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!”[d] 15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 So they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph and the child lying in the manger.

* Jordan Peterson – “It isn’t that the Bible is true. It’s that the Bible is the precondition for the manifestation of truth, which makes it way more true than just true,” Peterson continued. “It’s a whole different kind of true. I think this is not only literally the case, but factually. I think it can’t be any other way. It’s the only way we can solve the problem of perception.”

Biden Now Reading, “Art of the Deal”
(The Bee) WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to negative backlash over a poorly negotiated prison exchange with Russia, President Biden has begun reading The Art of the Deal by Donald Trump.
“I vow to do better, Jack!” Biden told the family of Paul Whelan, a former U.S. Marine who is still stuck in a Russian prison. “That’s why I picked up this great book from the library.”
“I mean look at this guy. He looks like he makes deals every day!” said Biden, holding the book up proudly. “I promise you I’m going to be just like him. A real go-getter!”
Whelan’s family initially expressed disappointment when American authorities first traded notorious Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, also known as “The Merchant of Death,” for WNBA athlete Brittney Griner, but are now hopeful that a deal can be made. “If anyone can bring Paul home it’s Donald Trump,” said Paul’s twin brother David.
Biden has committed to finishing the book before reopening negotiations with the Russian government, say officials close to the president. The president is reportedly staying up as late as 6 PM to squeeze in some reading time.
“I’m going to be the master of the art of the deal, Jack!” Biden told CBS’ Margaret Brennan. “No one will want to play Monopoly with me after I’m done with this book! Not a joke.”
According to sources, Biden has been honing his new skills by trading Pokémon cards with kids outside the White House. “I traded a Flareon holo card for three Magikarps,” Biden confirmed. “I’m doing it! I’m making deals!”
At publishing time, Biden was hopeful that Putin would accept some Pokémon cards in exchange for Paul Whelan.
