Episode 020: Christmas Special

December 12, 2012

This week, first thing's first: is your humble host actually Santa Claus? Listen and find out!

We get up to speed on the predicted coming of Jesus and the nature of prophecy.

When was Jesus born? Was it during the reign of Harod the Great, or a couple years after Herod died, during the course of a census? The Bible seems to think... both times. But, well, which is it?

Who were the Magi—or, the "Three Wise Men"? Kings, astrologers, or something else?

Finally, the Bible speaks of going into a forest, cutting down a tree, and decking it with silver and gold. Is it describing a Christmas tree?!

All this and more on this special Christmas episode of The Human Bible!
