Why did God ordain that Christ would be born in Bethlehem and not in the Capitol city, Jerusalem where the temple stood?
When we look at the fact that God had ordained every detail of the Christmas story to tell an even greater story, it all makes sense. The census, Bethlehem, the stable, the shepherds, every minute detail was part of God’s greater plan.
There were those in Jesus day who didn’t understand who Jesus really was, just as today many don’t know who He really is.
And yet, there are incredible jewels surrounding the Christmas story that keep telling us who Jesus is.
