  1. Bethlehem

    As the prophet has written:] "But you, Bethlehem, in the land
    of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out
    of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people
    -- Matthew 2:6

    The birth of Jesus at Bethlehem is no accident. The Almighty God
    had foretold this many years earlier through his prophets. Even
    Herod's religious lackeys could determine that the Messiah was to
    be born in the quaint old city of David. The human birth of the
    promised Messiah would occur in the city of Israel's great King,
    poet, and shepherd. This was God's plan. It is also a reminder that
    God keeps his word and fulfills his promises.

  2. That He does.
  3. Bethlehem means house of bread- Jesus is the Bread of Life!
