No man knows the future, and yet the prophets of the Old Testament correctly foretold many things about the coming Messiah. One of those prophets, Micah, gives a specific detail about where the Messiah will be born:
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.” (Micah 5:2)
How could Micah have been right? Because the Bible isn’t just the writing of men. It is the revelation of God Most High, Creator of Heaven and Earth, the Lord Almighty who alone knows the ancient past and the distant future.
“Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one.” (Isaiah 44:8)
This video short, Born in Bethlehem, describes the textual and archaeological evidence connected to the fulfillment of Micah’s prophecy. God proclaimed it through His prophets; it came to pass; we can still see the evidence today…Jesus was born in Bethlehem.
Peace to you through Christ…the child born to us, the son given to us, the Rock of our salvation.
