Why did nobody say any of this at the time?


Like Theodoric I'd like to ask what time?

But, I'm going to pick some times you could possibly talking about and try to explain it.

At the time it supposedly happened: Nobody said anything because it didn't happen.

Between the time of it supposedly happening and the writing of Luke: Nobody knew it happened, since it didn't.

After the writnig of Luke: It's now at least 3 generations ago, most people can't even read, so they'll have to take the author's "word" for it.

After people knew it couldn't have happened: Don't doubt the word of god or you'll go to hell!

Does that answer your question?

There is also the incident of herod attempting to kill all infant boys up to the age of 2 which indicates that Herod has some idea of the age of the child born to mary.


An incident, by the way, for which there is absolutely no evidence of it ever having happened.
