The supposed birth day of Jesus Christ, is simply around the corner. It’s only 19 days short before Christmas.
Having had that said, here’s what I want you to do. I assume that the most of you, would know the story of Mary and Joseph, yes? Well, let’s try incorporating it to the world today.
If Mary and Joseph had set off from Nazareth to Bethlehem in current times, they would be forced to go through 11Israeli Checkpoints, security checks, and a 30 foot concrete barricade wall.
Chances are, like many other heavily pregnant women, Mary wouldn’t have been able to go through. Joseph would have most probably been shot…and Jesus? He would have simply not come to be or he would have been an Israeli Checkpoint baby.
A not so detailed map, just to give you a wild idea.
