4. A strange place for the King


When Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem, they didn’t go to hospital and there was no guest bedroom, so they had to stay in a stable. A place usually kept for animals, like donkeys and sheep. That very night, Mary’s baby was born. Joseph named the baby ‘Jesus’ which means ‘God saves’. What a strange place for a king to be born.

Mary tenderly wrapped him up in cloths, they didn’t have a cot or Moses basket, so they laid him in the animals’ feeding trough, the manger. There Jesus slept, God making his home with us.

Quiz – Question 4

Who usually stayed in the room Jesus was born in?

You can find the answers to our quiz and the treasure at the end of our trail at Scene 8.
