The Birth of Jesus
 

image\bible_persp9.gif

The ancient prophets of Israel all predicted the coming of the Messiah. Some mentioned that he would be the savior of the Jews and of all mankind, others mentioned that he would be meek and gentle and would perform mighty miracles healing the blind, raising the dead, and cleansing the lepers. Still others would talk about his coming to the earth as a man to die as a lamb, and also to return as a king to set up his throne upon the earth. The prophet Micah actually predicted the exact location of the Messiah's birth, he said it would be in Bethlehem of Judah, a small and insignificant city, and the place where David was born. God had prepared the nation of Israel for 2000 years, reminding them that he was coming, yet when he arrived there was only a few to greet him. God faithfully kept all his promises to save all people from the sin that corrupted them. When the savior was born, his father called his name Jesus, because God himself would become a man and save people from their sins, which is the meaning of the name.

"But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting." - Micah 5:2
