Bible Cities (6)

Nazareth was a city in Galilee. Joseph and Mary lived there until they traveled to Bethlehem for the registration. While they were in Bethlehem, Mary’s baby, Jesus, was born. Later they went to Egypt so that King Herod would not kill Jesus.
When it was safe, Joseph, Mary and Jesus returned from Egypt and lived in Nazareth. When Jesus was 12 years old, his family traveled from Nazareth to Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. Jesus probably lived in Nazareth until He started His ministry when He was about 30 years old.
I would like to have lived in Nazareth when Jesus was a boy. I could have watched Him as He grew up. I can’t go back and live in Nazareth, but I can know Jesus today. I can learn about Him in the Bible. I can know that Jesus died for my sins and accept Him as my Savior. And, I can look forward to the time when Jesus will take me to live forever with Him.
I hope that you know Jesus today. If not, take time to get to know Him!
