Thus it was Foretold …
“But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though
thou be little among the thousands of Judah,
yet out of thee shall come forth unto me
that is to be ruler in Israel; whose
goings forth have been from of old,
~ Micah 5:2 KJV ~
“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign;
Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a
son, and shall call his name Immanuel”.
~ Isaiah 7:14 KJV ~
And thus it was fulfilled …
“And it came to pass in those days,
that there went out a decree from Caesar
Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
(And this taxing was first made when
Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
And all went to be taxed, every
one into his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee.
out of the city of Nazareth,
into Judaea, unto the city of David,
which is called Bethlehem;
(because he was of the house and
lineage of David):
To be taxed with Mary his espoused
wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that, while they were
there, the days were accomplished that
she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son,
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger; because there
was no room for them in the inn”.
~ Luke 2:1-7 KJV ~
