Jesus, like King David, was born in Bethlehem. David was in the ‘human’ lineage of Jesus. A tiny book found in the Old Testament of the Bible named Micah proclaimed this prophecy hundreds of years before it was written about in the book of Luke that is in the New Testament.
[a]But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah,
are only a small village among all the people of Judah.
Yet a ruler of Israel,
whose origins are in the distant past,
will come from you on my behalf.
3 The people of Israel will be abandoned to their enemies
until the woman in labor gives birth.
Then at last his fellow countrymen
will return from exile to their own land.
4 And he will stand to lead his flock with the Lord’s strength,
in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.
Then his people will live there undisturbed,
for he will be highly honored around the world.
