12.This is what happened in the 2010 Christmas play at Saint Dominic's Church.The angel informs Mary that she is pregnant. When she tells Joseph, he getsupset and wants to leave her, but an angel assures him the child is from theHoly Spirit, so they get married. Near the end of the pregnancy, they hear thatthey must travel to Bethlehem to register for the census. Joseph walks, whileMary rides on a donkey. When they arrive, they cannot get a room in the inn,so Mary gives birth to Jesus in the barn and places him in a manger. A fewdays later, three shepherds arrive with gifts of gold, incense, and myrrh. Whatserious factual error do you observe in the play?a.Joseph and Mary were poor, so they almost certainly did not own adonkey. Mary must have walked to Bethlehem.b.Joseph did not receive a message from an angel to reassure him toproceed with the marriage.c.Nowhere in the biblical text does it say that they could not get a room inthe inn.d.The shepherds did not arrive with gifts; the play has merged theshepherds with the magi.e.The scriptures mention three gifts, and it is wrong to think that thismeans each shepherd had one of the gifts.13.In Matthew 1-2, an angel of the Lord repeatedly spoke to people in dreams.Read those chapters closely, and indicate which statement below is mostfactually correct and complete.14.Which statement is correct?7

I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
