Read: Luke 2:4 (Nazareth)
Joseph and Mary were from a small town in northern Israel known as Nazareth. In Jesus’s day, the city of Nazareth had a population of less than 500 people. Instead of having the parents of Jesus be celebrities who lived in famous cities, God chose Mary and Joseph . . . virtual nobodies (to everyone but God) who lived in a small town.
Question of the Day: Why do you think God chose small town, non-famous people to be the parents of Jesus Christ?
