  • Interesting but doubtful, since the prophecy recorded at Micah 5:2 specifically names Bethlehem Ephrathah as the location of Jesus' birth. Luke 2:4 states that "Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Jude′a, to David’s city, which is called Bethlehem, because of his being a member of the house and family of David" this indicated that Joseph left from Galilee, not went to Galilee. "Oshri reportedly found the remains of the strong fortification walls among olive trees on the edges of Bethlehem of Galilee, and he suggests early Christians built it to protect the real site of Jesus' birth." Early Christians would have looked for the Messiah in the place where the prophets indicated he would be. When Jesus died he said "It has been accomplished." All of the prophecies uttered about him, starting with Genesis 3:15 had come to the full, including the location of his birth. IMO.
