Bethlehem or Beit-Lechem literally means ‘house of bread.’ Beit-Lechem is where Rachel, the wife of Jacob was buried. The account of Ruth meeting her kinsman redeemer occurs in Beit-Lechem. The prophet Micah prophesied that the ‘future ruler of Isra’el’ would be born in the small village of Beit-Lechem. David, a future ruler of Isra’el, lived in Beit-Lechem and Yeshua, the King of kings fulfilled Micah’s prophecy.
Most Christians acknowledge that Jesus (Yeshua) was not born on December 25 in the middle of winter. Yet few realize that Yeshua’s birth is outlined in the Bible if they could unravel some of the clues given to them in the gospels and refer back to the Hebrew Scriptures.
