How did the writers of the New Testament know the details of the birth of Jesus?

Asked by LostInParadise (23794points) December 12th, 2012

I mean no disrespect. I am not Christian and am ignorant of the New Testament. I assume there is a simple answer to the question. Were any of the disciples present at the birth? Might Jesus have told them about it based on what he heard from Mary and Joseph?
