Two accounts of the disciples state Bethlehem as the birthplace of Jesus in the new testament – that being in the gospel according to Matthew & Luke. It is written that Jesus’ parents traveled from neighbouring Nazeareth for the census of Quirinius. In Matthew’s account – Jesus’ parnets already lived in Bethlehem and fled to Nazareth to avoid persecution.

We hope you return to our site regularly as we go into more detail about the history of the birth of Jesus, and the history of this wonderful holy city – Bethlehem – the birthplace of our savior Jesus Christ
