“In those days a decree went out from Emperor Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the ﬁrst registra=on and was taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. All went to their own towns to be registered. Joseph also went from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to the city of David called Bethlehem, because he was descended from the house and family of David. He went to be registered with Mary, to whom he was engaged and who was expec=ng a child. While they were there, the =me came for her to deliver her child. And she gave birth to her ﬁrstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.”
