Bethlehem map ? The Birthplace of Jesus

Bethlehem lies 10 kilometres south of the city of?Jerusalem, in the fertile limestone hill country of the Holy Land. Since at least the 2nd century AD people have believed that the place where the?Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem, now stands is where Jesus was born.

In 1000 B.C., King David conquered Jerusalem and made it the capital of the?Jewish?kingdom. His son, Solomon, built the first Holy Temple about 40 years later. The?Babylonians?occupied Jerusalem in 586 B.C., destroyed the Temple, and sent the?Jews?into exile.
