" Jesus is known as a jew widely by the jewish Christians or evangelicals. He excoriated the jewish Pharisees every chance he could until he was conspiratorially murdered by them . Otherwise he is a devine spirit who preached and taught in Judea; known as Palestine today. If he did his Great Work in Texas he'd be known as a Texan."
Bethlehem was the scene of Jesus' nativity...Bethlehem was located in the tribal lands of Judah.
He was born in the tribal territory of Judah.. Can't be much more Jewish than that.
Furthermore, the lambs that were brought to sacrifice at the temple, were usually selected from the flocks around Bethlehem. "sacrificial lamb"..get it"
How clever of God to have this king of the Jews born in the same town where King David was born and raised!
Jesus said, "I am the bread of life"..at communion, we eat of the bread..
Bethlehem..interpreted..means the "house of bread".. God had it all figured..didn't he!
