How Jesus got his name

Joseph and Mary were on their way to Bethlehem, when they were stopped
by 3 men on camels.
When asked who they were, one answered, “We’re the 3 wise men, and we
wanted to tell you, Joseph and Mary, that you’ll have a very tough time
finding a place to stay in Bethlehem. All the rooms are booked at the
inns and hotels. So, you’ll have to stay in a stable somewhere, and your
baby will be born in the manger.”
Then they continued, “It will be a beautiful baby boy.”
“Wow,” said Joseph, “What else do you know?”
“Well,” they answered, “you’ll name the baby Jesus.”
Then Mary piped up and with excitement said, “You know, I think I like
that better than Irving.”
