The birth stories of Yeshua have issues. It’s not easy to understand why there are such big differences between them. It’s not easy to answer how the evangelists could have obtained the information in their accounts. And the virginal conception of Yeshua is not as obviously historical as many would make it out to be.
Should we ignore the problems and smooth over the differences? Will that approach to reading the gospels increase faith and make more disciples for Yeshua? I don’t think so. I think we need to honestly face the birth issues. This is my attempt.
