Bethlehem Of JudÆa (Matt. 2:1)

This Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, which lies some six miles to the south of Jerusalem, is evidently so described to distinguish it from another Bethlehem, mentioned only three times in the Bible (see Josh. 19:15; Judg. 12:8, 10). The latter town lay in Galilee, about six miles west of Nazareth, where much of Jesus' early life was spent. (Cf. Luke 2:39, 51, 52.)
