Better Bibles Blog: Luke 2:16 How many were in the manger?
The NRSV has the following wording for Luke 2:16
So they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the child lying in the manger.
If you think about it, this is rather confusing. How many people were in the manger? Just Jesus? or were his parents in there with him? Wayne Leman has a very interesting post on his blog about how different Bible translations deal with this – which is a problem in English, but not in the original.
