Hello dear ones,
I had a question, and its been bothering me for a while.
The Catholic celebrate Christmas the 25th of December... but they celebrate the day that the three wise men came on the sixth of January...
Also, when the three wise men went to Betlehem, they first went to Jerusalem to ask Herodes about the (already) born King. And it seems logical to me that their camels weren't that fast that they came from the East, to Jerusalem and after that went to Betlehem, all in one day.
So my question is the following: how long did the Holy Family stay in Betlehem, in the stable, and how long did it take the three wise men to get there.
I suppose they didn't arrive at the day of Birth itself. Or were they travelling since July?
And another thing: Where was the Holy Family when the angel appeared to Josef and told him that he had to go to Egypt? Also in the stable?
I'm sorry guys, I know, a lot of questions, but I'd love to see them answered.
Thanks a lot in advance, and a Merry Christmas to all of you, and a blessed, fun and healthy 2007.
Keep me in your prayers,
