> Once thing regarding the prophecy about Jesus being being born Bethlehem. I heard an argument that he was really born in Nazareth because the Bible always refers to him as Jesus of Nazareth, not Jesus of Bethlehem. What is your opinion?


Dave,

I appreciate your heart to learn.

Mary and Joseph lived in Nazareth before Jesus was born. Luke 1:26-27

When Caesar Augustus called for a census, Joseph took Mary and went to Bethlehem to register because Joseph was of the lineage of David (that was just where the lineage of David registered). While they were there, Jesus was born. Luke 2:1-7

They did return home to Nazareth, which is where Jesus grew up. So Nazareth was Jesus' "hometown", so to speak. Luke 2:39-40

God bless.
