Re-struck by How Little Christmas Material is in the Bible

Today’s New Testament lectionary reading should look familiar.  That’s because it is made up of the lectionary readings from 12/17 and 12/18.  As I noticed that, it made me think of just how little Christmas material there is to choose from when developing the lectionary for this season.  There’s none in Mark or John.  And, Matthew and Luke don’t spend that much time on it either.  And, I guess unless they want to break the readings down into smaller parts, this is the result.
