The Birth of Jesus
It was during this time that a decree was sent out from the Roman emperor Caesar Augustus that there should be a census for the entire world. People were told to return to their cities.
Mary was ready to give birth, which she did in Bethlehem. Mary delivered her first-born son and wrapped the baby Jesus up in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger because there was no room for them in the inn.
