Q&A

Is it true that there is no record of a census around the birth of Jesus and therefore Joseph and Mary weren’t in Bethlehem?

8/4/2011

Question:

I saw a television program that said historians doubt Jesus was born at Bethlehem because &quot;there is no record of a census at that time&quot; and thus no reason for Joseph and Mary to go to Bethlehem. Is that true? <br />
