Bethlehem and The Church of the Nativity Photo Series Part 2

2:4 And when he (Herod) had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. 
2:5  And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
2:6  And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
Matthew 2:4 - 2:6

This is part 2 of the pictures of Bethlehem and the Church of the Nativity Photo Series.  Last week I featured pictures up to the front of the Church of the Nativity. This week we will enter the church.  It is so beautiful.

Once we enter the church you will see tile murals on the walls and floor.  there are lots of beautiful hanging lights, and ornate alter, you will see a wedding, then we enter the grotto with the star that symbolizes where Jesus was born, and then we leave the church, and are back on the streets of Bethlehem.  Now,  the pictures.






























I hope you have enjoyed my tour of Bethlehem and the Church of the Nativity.  I really enjoyed this trip.  I would love to hear any comments that you have.  I always enjoy hearing from you.

Enjoy!!!
