QUESTION: Bethlehem


Bethlehem is about six miles south of Jerusalem in Israel. Bethlehem was the birthplace of David (1 Samuel 16) and the birth place of Jesus Christ (Matthew 2:1). Remarkably, the Prophet Micah predicted that the Messiah of Israel would be born in the small village of Bethlehem about 700 years before the birth of Christ (Micah 5:2; Matthew 2:6).

On the horizon in the picture below is the Church of the Nativity that marks the traditional place of Christ’s birth. This is the view the shepherds would have had on that awesome night about 2,000 years ago (Luke 2:8).

Evidence For Jesus - Go!

What do you think?
We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

Yes, I want to follow Jesus

I am a follower of Jesus

I still have questions
