Was Jesus born in a stable? or in a house?

Today the world celebrates Jesus’ Birthday.

And for the past few days and weeks many plays, nativity scenes, church programs and other activities have depicted this event.

Likely almost all of these depictions have pictured the birth happening in a manger setting.

But is this what really happened?

An excellent article about this was recently posted on the AIG website.  HERE’S THE LIINK.
