Cultures effect

 

We all know that culture effects us. The world puts things before us and tells us we need this, what to believe, and who to believe. Now you may be saying it doesn’t really have that much effect on you especially when it comes to what you believe in the Bible. Well lets see how culture has effected when it comes to the Nativity Story.

How many wise men were there?
A. 3   B. 15  C. 1  D.we don’t know

Where did the wise men visit Jesus?
A. House B.Stable C. Manger D. Desert

Two simple questions right. If you look at any nativity set there are always 3 wise men right beside Jesus in the manger. Except we don’t how many wise men there were, nor did the wise men visit Jesus when he was new born in the manger. They actually visited him in a house. The reason we assume three wise men is because of the three gifts. Its crazy how we have allowed culture, the world, assumptions and our personal beliefs to mess up the Nativity Story. This should make you aware of how culture and the world can effect your knowledge of the Bible and you never even notice it. So next time someone says something about the Bible take some time to look it up.

 11 And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.”
Matthew 2:11
