Prophecy (735-700 B.C)
Micah 5:2 (NIV)

     “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
though you are small among the clans[b] of Judah,
out of you will come for me
one who will be ruler over Israel,
whose origins are from of old,
from ancient times.”

Matthew 2:1-2,5-6 (NIV) 
(A.D 70-110)

1 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea,
during the time of King Herod, Magi[a] from the east
came to Jerusalem 2 and asked,

“Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

5 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied,
“for this is what the prophet has written:

6 “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for out of you will come a ruler
who will shepherd my people Israel.’[b]”
