The birth of Jesus is a study of contrast.
Jesus was born in the rural village of Bethlehem, in a stable that was nothing like the sanitized nativity scenes we see so often today. The stable was most likely a stone structure just large enough to provide shelter for a few animals.
King Herod was an architectural genius who built large, elaborate structures to celebrate himself and to protect him from his enemies. One of the greatest of these was the Herodian, a fortress that overshadowed Bethlehem.
Jesus sacrificed Himself so that we could live.
Herod murdered many people so that he could reign.
Jesus is the Son of God
Herod was the son of Edom.
The Bible tells the truth about who Jesus is. You can read the story of his birth in Luke 2
