Questions About the Nativity

In celebrating the Feast of the Nativity of our Lord, we encounter many questions, like
Why do we celebrate on the 7th of January instead of the 25th of December?
What is the difference between the Wise Men (or Magi) and the shepherds?
How do we explain the differences in teh geneologies and nativity accounts in the gospels according to St. Mark and St. Luke?
Was St. Mary from the tribe of Judah or the tribe of Levi and Aaron?
These questions and many more are answered by His Holiness Pope Shenouda III, in this small pamphelt entitled, “Questions About the Nativity.”
