Why Jesus was born in a stable?


Here is a different, i.e. non spiritual, perspective on why Jesus was born in a stable and placed in a manger.

I think He was born in a manger because God wanted to make it clear to everyone, especially the shepherds, that they had identified Jesus as the right baby.

Why? because mistaken identity can cause problems … just take a look at this short video.


On any given night in a city like Bethlehem, several babies will be born.

Can you imagine the shepherds, barging into one house after the other, trying to find THE baby, talking excitedly about the Messiah and the angels they saw – there would have been a lot of confusion in the entire city and it could have led to the wrong child being identified.

God wanted the shepherds and the world to KNOW who Jesus and so He had a simple solution. Send the shepherds to a place they would be familiar and comfortable with … a stable.

Well, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!!.

Have a blessed day.
