Jesus Christ was born in a small town called Bethlehem, near the city of Jerusalem. Bethlehem was an important place for the Jews and they considered it holy. It was in this city that thousands of years before, God made the prophet David king of Israel. God promised that David’s kingdom would last forever and that he would send the Messiah from David’s the descendants. Jesus Christ is the gift of God Almighty. He was sent to this world to save mankind.
