While conversing with my dear kambal, she gave out the trivia that the Christmas story (birth of Christ) is mentioned only in two out of the four Gospels, particularly in Matthew and Luke. Digging deeper into this trivia, I learned that:

  • Luke's story takes place mostly before the birth of Jesus and centers on Mary
  • Matthew's story takes place mostly after the birth of Jesus and centers on Joseph
  • The birth and life of Christ as a child comprises around 10% of the text of Luke
  • In Luke, Jesus was visited by the shepherds
  • In Matthew, Magi coming the East visited to worship Christ
