Merry Christmas! #57
... and two versions of the Christmas story
I know that we’re about philosophy here, not religion, but perhaps we can make an exception and get into the right mindset for the Christmas. Here, then, is Luke’s account of the birth of Jesus. After that, you can read how the Quran describes the same scene. By the way, the cover image is a nativity scene painted on cardboard cut-outs by our family.
The birth of Jesus in Luke 2
2 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to their own town to register.
