The 'narrative' is a crowd-pleaser/gatherer/control - Mechanism...
And is massively out-of-context.
The findings at Qumran and Nag Hamadi (Dead Sea Scrolls & Lost Gospels) are, virtually ignored by scholars, shepherds and sheep, alike - Not wanting the applecart upset.
The gnostic gospel of Thomas is a truer impression (No Narrative) of Immanuels' personage.
Mathew - is a very badly rescribe of 'Mark'. With all the judaic-prophecies added to make the commoner submit to the prescription-based Ideal.
Just read them both side by side - 50-150 word paragraphs 97% identical - supposedly from alternate perspectives...?
Less the Xmas story and miracles, of course.
Have a lovely Day.
