A specific place

Micah 5:2 “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands in Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth to me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” This is the scripture that the priests turned to when Herod wanted to know where Christ would be born (Matthew 2:4-6).
By being born here in this city there is a calling back to king David and the promise God gave him about always having an heir to sit on his throne. It also did something else. By giving a specific place some 700 years beforehand and then it coming true God was giving divine proof that this baby boy really was the Messiah. Every prophecy that Jesus fulfilled added further proof to His authority. Details truly matter!
