The prophet Micah, approximately 700 years before the birth of Jesus, said, “But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, from the days of eternity.” (Micah 5:2)
Bethlehem literally means house of bread. Therefore, how appropriate for God to arrange for Jesus, the Bread of Life, to be born in Bethlehem. Shepherds were visited by an angel who told them that a savior had been born in the City of David (Bethlehem) who is Christ the Lord. They were also told that they would find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. (Luke 2:11-12) There is no mistake. God placed Jesus in a feeding trough to be bread for men. Jesus said, “I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he shall live forever; and the bread also which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.” (John 6:51)
