Here are the answers to the Christmas Quiz in the 2014 and 2016 Advent and Christmas KSC:

1, 3, 7, 8, 10, 11, 15, 19, 23 (Gabriel, manger, journey to Bethlehem, angels singing, Roman census, Mary is central figure, no room at the inn, shepherds, light to the Gentiles) are only in Luke

2, 4, 6, 12, 13, 14, 18, 20, 21, 24 (star, a worried Herod, found in house, flight to Egypt, gifts, King of the Jews, warnings in dreams, intrigue and murder, Joseph is central figure, multiple prophecies fulfilled) are only in Matthew

5 (virgin birth) is found both in Matthew and Luke, although some scholars will argue that what is described in Matthew is not tecnhically a virgin birth but an immaculate conception. The gospels do mention that Jesus had brothers, some of whom could even have been born before Jesus.

9, 16, 17 and 22 (animals in the stable, three wise men, camels, little drummer boy) are found nowhere in the scriptures. Also, nothing about Jesus being born in wintertime, not even in a metaphorical sense. A note about the three wise men. Matthew mentions three gifts—gold, frankincense and myrrh, but these could have been offered by two wise men or a dozen. No number is actually specified in Matthew.

So, how well did you do? A blessed Christmas to all! And read your Bibles!
