The Journey to Bethlehem – The House of David Revived



Nearly six hundred years before Jesus was born, Jerusalem was toppled and King David’s descendants no longer reigned there. But that didn’t mean that the line of eligible Davidic kings was broken. While governors and puppet kings kept the throne warm, David’s line went on in humble obscurity. Only someone from David’s line had a legitimate claim to be King of the Jews, and all the Jewish people were looking for The House of David to rise once more. That put the little town of Bethlehem – not even big enough to be called a clan village, let alone “royal David’s city” – right in the middle of the map in terms of Messianic expectations. Mary and Joseph were only following Roman orders by travelling there, but their journey meant the revival of the House of David.
