which way to bethlehem?

Mark doesn't say anything at all about the event. John's account is abstract and figurative.

Matthew mentions the Magi but not the shepereds. Nothing about the manger, either.

Luke doesn't discuss the wise men, but gives the poor, lonely shepherds the big honor.

And did anyone really say anything, anywhere, about the inn being overbooked? Guess it's time to find out.
