    John made the way for the Messiah.
    Each of us has to make room for him.

    Yup, that just about sums it up.
    .
    And let’s not forget those who have investigated the true date of the Messiah’s birth: approximately early April; when lambs are born for that symbology.
    .
    And, yup, the reining church decided to appropriate the pagan solstice Holy Day to get the locals to worship at the same time as the Christians.
    .
    Also, shepherds and angels celebrated His birth on the very night He was born. The wise men (scripture doesn’t say how many) brought gifts when the Messiah was a toddler, which helped the family make a quick getaway from Herod’s baby killers.
    .
    Whoops! I’m getting ahead of the story.

    I read that story several times.

    The word which has been translated “INN”, in Luke 2:7 is the Greek word “Kataluma.” That is not the same word Luke uses in 10:34 when the good Samaritan takes the injured man to an Inn. The word “Kataluma” is not used there, but rather the Greek word “pandocheion.” This shows that Luke knew his words and chose intentionally the word “Kataluma” for where Jesus was born. But Luke does use the word “Kataluma” one more time. When Jesus and his disciples gather for their last meal together, they gather in the “Kataluma” which in Luke 22:12 is translated “Guest Room,” in the ESV. We need to get it straight. There was no room in the Guest Room. There was no Inn and no Inn Keeper, and no Inn Keeper’s wife.

    As I understand it, “inn” and “guest room” are both valid translations for “kataluma”. Main point is the same, though – when Joseph and Mary arrived at Bethlehem, they had no place to stay – whether it was a commercial establishment (caravansary) or a relative’s spare room.
