“Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell me!”

Have you ever listened to National Public Radio’s weekly news program, “Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell Me?” I have developed a Christmas edition of this program for students of the Bible. See how many of these questions you can answer. Then share this quiz with your family and friends. You may want to add some questions of your own. But don’t make them too difficult! This should be an enjoyable learning experience.

The First Christmas in Light of Biblical Culture

One key to a proper understanding of the nativity of Jesus is the translation of the word usually rendered “inn.” This brings to mind the modern motel or the ancient caravansary where travelers could stay while traveling along the road. But the Greek word kataluma is best rendered “guest room” and refers to a special room for guests in the family home.
