Biblical Limericks: Christmas Edition 4

Children in their father’s bathrobes dressed
ready to give the pageant their best;
the innkeeper will say,
‘sleep in the barn, you may,’
but Luke says naught of an inn for guests.

Luke 2: 7

The Greek word commonly translated as “inn” is katalyma which more accurately means “guest room” – in a private dwelling rather than a commercial property for travelers.
