Travel Log # 7 Israel Part 15 Bethlehem

It was very exciting to actually be in Bethlehem. But it was nothing like what I pictured from reading in the Bible. Everything is so commercialized today. A church has been built over the place where the stable was. I understand they have to preserve these special places but it doesn’t help me any in my imagination. Pic 1 We bought a Nativity set from a shop in Bethlehem. We don’t know how accurate this is either because Jesus may have been  born in a cave, made into a stable.

Pic 2 is of Jerry and me going into the place where they say Jesus was born.

Pic 3 is  supposedly the very spot where Jesus was born! It’s supposed to look like a star. It was a little disappointing.
