Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It matters little whether Jesus was born at Nazareth or Bethlehem. The accounts conflict, but the point is of no consequence.

It is of consequence, however, that He was born in a stable and cradled in a manger. This fact of itself, about which there is no question, certifies conclusively the proletarian character of Jesus Christ. Had His parents been other than poor working people -- money changers, usurers, merchants, lawyers, scribes, priests, or other parasites -- He would not have been delivered from His mother's womb on a bed of straw in a stable among asses and other animals.
