Merry Christmas! Did you know that Jesus was actually born in a cave??

I know, who knew, right?! This seemed a rather timely historical tidbit, so I thought I’d share. When I went to Jerusalem this summer I was shocked to find this out and to also learn that the Sea of Galilee is actually a lake. These seemed rather important “details” that would have been nice to know (even if just from a historical perspective) after hearing about them all these years. All I could think was, “Why has no one ever mentioned this before??” Well, now I know and so do you! The photo here is of me in Bethlehem touching the spot in the cave, not the barn, where Jesus was born…pretty cool, huh? Click here to see more photos of the trip!
