Born In Bethlehem

"Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea..." (Matthew 2:1)

Bethlehem means "house (or place) of bread"...

....."And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst." (John 6:35)

So it was fulfilled, The Bread of Life was born in Bethlehem, the "place of bread!"

Interestingly, the Hebrew meaning of the name Micah is "who is like Jehovah?"

How beautiful that because of the fulfillment of His Word, Purpose and Promises, we have an opportunity for reconciliation with God, to live in His image...become "like Jehovah" and feast on The Bread of Life!

"And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him..." (Colossians 3:10)
