Here are some nativities from around town. The last two are mine. Believe it or not, the next to last one is paper mache'! Now settle in for a story of the birth of Jesus from a whole different angle, it's all about the inn. When David was running from his son, a man name Barzillai helped him and fed him, and David never forgot about him. So after David got his throne back, he offered to reward Barzillai. Barzillai refused, instead asking David to help out his son Kimham instead, and David agreed. Some bible scholars believe that David gave Kimham a house in Bethleham which later became an inn. David's great-grandparents had been Boaz and Ruth, so David had likely inherited this house, which had been theirs, and it was probably David's childhood home. Kimham later turned this house in Bethlehem into an inn. And if this was the case, the inn that Mary and Joseph came to was the same house that had been owned by king David!! And my first picture? This is what the stone feeding trough looked like where they laid baby Jesus.
