Micah 5:2 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are too small to be among the army groups from Judah, from you will come one who will rule Israel for me. He comes from very old times, from days long ago.”
800 years before Christ was born, the prophet Micah prophecies the place of his birth. The Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. Bethlehem means “the house of bread” and Jesus declared himself “The Bread Of Life” in John 6:35. Bethlehem is five miles southwest of Jerusalem and is also the birthplace of David.
