The Arrival in Bethlehem

Luke 2:4-7

In the Gospel of Luke, we are told that Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem during the census, for that was Joseph's birthplace. It is not just any city. Bethlehem was where King David was born. Prophecies had predicted that the Messiah would be born in David's birthplace, so Luke tells us the story of how Jesus was born there, even though he grew up in a town further north, in Galilee. In these paintings, we see the holy couple on the road, and being turned away as they look for lodging. All images are in the public domain.

" Joseph also went from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to the city of David called Bethlehem, because he was descended from the house and family of David. He went to be registered with Mary, to whom he was engaged and who was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for her to deliver her child. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.”
