"Oh little town of Bethlehem. . . . How still we see thee lie. . . "
Happy holidays from Colby Keller!!! I snapped this pic of David earlier this month in San Francisco.
Christmas trivia: What city was the baby Jesus born in?
Answer: The city of David! Also know as Bethlehem (or Beit Lechem in Hebrew), Bethlehem has two significant meanings for Christians, one that is often overlooked. The city helps link Jesus to King David, establishing Jesus as the prophesied heir to the throne of Israel. Messiah and Christ mean mean "anointed one" afterall, a term reserved for priests and kings. The City also helps foreshadow the Eucharist. "Beit Lechem" translates as "House of Bread". Put that in your carol and sing it. :-)
