Located at the border between the mountains and the wilderness, its inhabitants benefited from the fertile mountain valleys and pastures the wilderness provided for the shepherds’ flock.

Seven hundred years before Jesus was born, Micah prophesied that the Messiah would come out of Bethlehem. Jesus%u2014the Son of God, the King of the universe%u2014would be from the line of David and would rule on the throne of David forever. Bethlehem links Jesus to the lineage and family of David.
