It cannot be known for sure, however we may safely assume it to be quite crowded with visitors due to the influx of people living in other places, like Joseph, returning to pay the taxes that were a tribute to Rome.. Quite the quiet place . It was a small place with only a handful of permanent r…esidents, but the inns were packed at the time of Jesus' birth, though these crowds were a transient lot, as they did not stay for any longer than they had to.

ANSWER: There might be a Bethlehem in Egypt, but the Bethlehem writtern about in the Bible is inIsrael. It is located approximately 5 miles south of Jerusalem.King David was born in Bethlehem and more importantly Jesus Christwas born in Bethlehem.
Ruth was a Moabitess who left behind the paganism of her homenation to follow the God of Israel. She was married in Moab to theIsraelite, Mahlon. When she became widowed, she showed faithfulnessto her mother in law, Naomi, and insisted on returning to Israel,as recorded in her great declaration of f…aithfulness (Ruth1:16-17): "And Ruth said, Do not entreat me to leave you, or todesist from following you. For where you go I will go; and whereyou lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and yourGod will be my God. Where you die, I will die, and there I will beburied. The Lord so help me, if anything but death will part us."Later she married a relative of Naomi's, Boaz, and became themother of Obed, grandmother of Jesse and great-grandmother of KingDavid. Answer 2 Ruth is the main character from the book of Ruth, from the oldtestament of the bible. She is a Moabite woman that marries one ofNaomi's sons. Both of Naomi's sons later die and she sends herdaughters-in-law back to their original families. Ruth howeverdoesn't want to leave Naomi and goes back with her (Naomi) toIsrael. Once there, Ruth goes to work gleaning the wheat fields andcatches the eye of one of her former husband's kinsmen, Boaz. As itwas customary for Hebrew kinsmen to marry their widowed in-lawsNaomi and Ruth drop him a heavy hint. Boaz however isn't the mostclosely related to Ruth, there is someone more closely related whowould be the more proper candidate. So Boaz has to go bargain withhim to get to marry Ruth. Ruth ends up being an ancestor to King David and Jesus Christ. ( Full Answer )
The exact date is unknown as there is no historically-verifiable internal evidence to verify it, but an estimate can be made. Ruth was David's great-grandmother:- . Rth 4:13 So Boaz took Ruth home as his wife. The LORD blessed her, and she became pregnant and had a son. Rth 4:14 The women said… to Naomi, "Praise the LORD! He has given you a grandson today to take care of you. May the boy become famous in Israel! Rth 4:15 Your daughter-in-law [Ruth] loves you, and has done more for you than seven sons. And now she has given you a grandson, who will bring new life to you and give you security in your old age." Rth 4:16 Naomi took the child, held him close, and took care of him. Rth 4:17 The women of the neighborhood named the boy Obed. They told everyone, "A son has been born to Naomi!" Obed became the father of Jesse, who was the father of David . Rth 4:18 This is the family line from Perez to David: Perez, Hezron, Ram, Amminadab, Nahshon, Salmon, Boaz, Obed, Jesse, David . [GNB] . It is generally accepted by secular historians that David became king about 1010BC, and the Bible says he was 30 at the time:- . 2Sa 5:4 David was thirty years old when he became king , and he ruled for forty years. [GNB] . This means David was born in 1040BC. We know David's father was Jesse, and his grandfather was Obed, who was probably born about a year after Ruth married Boaz. This means there were two full generations between the births of both David and Obed, so this brings up the question of how long a generation is. The answer is variable, but if it is taken as 25 years, then this means Obed was born in 1090BC. Because Bethlehem and Moab (where Ruth came from) are on either side of the Dead sea, the length of Ruth's journey from Moab would have been short and can thus be ignored. Adding a few years to account for generational-length variability would therefore make it about 1100BC when Ruth and Naomi moved from Moab to go to Bethlehem. ( Full Answer )

The population of Bethlehem was very crowded as Joseph found no place in any inn. Answer: That's what Augustus Caesar wanted to know: "About this time Caesar Augustus , the Roman Emperor, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the nation ... Everyone was required to return to his …ancestral home for his registration. And because Joseph was a member of the royal line, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, King David's ancient home -- journeying from the Galilean village of Nazareth. He took with him Mary, his fianc'eae, who was obviously pregnant by this time." (Luke 2:1-5 LVB Living Bible) The Bible doesn't disclose the result of Caesar's census, however ... but the crowded conditions in Bethlehem [and many other towns throughout Judaea] was the result of Caesar taking advantage of the Jew's observance of the Holy Day " Feast of Tabernacles " [the true and actual time of Jesus' birth; as revealed through the study of the timing of John the Baptist's birth; when Mary became pregnant during the sixth month of Elisabeth's pregnancy - verse 36 - see Luke chapter 1: which would have placed Jesus' conception, and Elisabeth's sixth month, around our month of December]. Rather than risking a rebellion among the Jews by ordering such an inconvenient mass migration for the sake of the census... Caesar knew that many of the Jews would have been heading, usually, toward Jerusalem for these seven days, anyway. Having them merely go to their ancestral homes instead of Jerusalem would have been a minor inconvenience upon them. In the observance of this annual feast, the people of God dwelt in some form of "temporary quarters" [tents or inns, as Joseph tried to do... but the inn and the town was filled beyond capacity]. Many Jews resided on their rooftops [a practice still used in Jerusalem by many, even today] for this seven-day period, as the instructions for the observance of the feast command. "This seven-day annual feast is a law from generation to generation. During those seven days, all of you who are native Israelites are to live in these shelters." (Lev.23:41-42 LVB ) However, the result of Caesar's census wasn't pertinent to God's inspired account... and the Bible doesn't disclose the number of the population of Bethlehem at the time of Jesus' birth.

Rut 2:22 And Naomi said unto Ruth her daughter in law, It is good, my daughter, that thou go out with his maidens, that they meet thee not in any other field. . Rut 3:9 And he said, Who art thou?

Bethlehemes is a custom in Central Europe. Around Christmas and especially at Epiphany young people go from house to house, receive treats. They are dressed as the three wise men, or other "Bethlehem" characters. There can be 6 or 7 wisemen, or more, not just the usual three! They leader carries a s…tar on a broom handle, and the group follows him or her from house to house, following the tradition of looking for the baby Jesus. Sometimes this star is 8 sided and of painted wood- yellow, or multi-colored in a geometric pattern. In other places (especially Germany) the star is more like a big pin-wheel, and in others still it is a lighted star lantern, the group following through the night air with their own lanterns as well. One other member of the troupe carries what looks like a small model of a church. Sometimes these are beautifully carved and hand painted representations of a church in the area. Sometimes they can be relatively large and heavy and are brought in by two men. When the "Bethlehemers" are welcomed into the house they sing, and everyone joins in. Then high point comes when the little church is opened up. There are not people inside but a beautiful nativity scene. Everyone looks at the nativity scene as though it were the first time the had ever seen one. Then everyone sings again, and treats are passed out to the visitors - chocolates, marzipan, toasted almonds or other nice things. For Catholics and Orthodox Christians in areas where the custom is still kept, this can be quite a formal and spiritual event, and the priest will come and bless the house with holy water and pine branches, and mark a blessing over the door in chalk for the new year. For Protestants and others though, this is mostly just fun. The term you are using "bethlehemes" comes from Bethlehemes jatek (pronounced: Bet-la-hem-esh Yah-teck) which means in the Hungarian language, Bethlehem game or Bethlehem Play. In Slavic lands this may be called J aselka (Nativity Play) or S zopka (Manger). In German speaking lands these groups are called Sternsinger which means Star-Singers for the star which they carry. The custom of Bethlehemes is similar to British and American caroling. Today, while the older tradition is still strong, Bethlehemes may also be a Christmas Presentation given by the children of a school, just as in Britain and the United States during the month of December. One other important part of the Bethlehemes custom is that the "Wisemen" and "Bethlehemers" besides bringing and receiving treats, are given money, but they don't keep it. They are collecting for worthy causes like the disabled veterans or children in Africa. Bethlehemes goes on usually from the first Sunday in the New Year, for a week until the Sunday that follows Epiphany, they Sunday after Epiphany being the big day for doing this. "Bethlehemer" school children - often dozens of them, all dressed as wisemen- also visit the president of several countries, and say "Christ bless this house" at the Parliment, and sing in the capital.

Twice. Initially Ruth and her sister Orpah were married to Mahlon and Chilion (not necessarily in that order), who were sons of Naomi. When Naomi's husband Elimelech died and the two sons died, the three ladies were left widowed. (cf. Ruth 1:1-6) Naomi decided to go back to Bethlehem, and Ruth… chose to accompany her, while Orpah stayed behind in Moab. Ruth then meets Boaz, and they marry. They have a son Obed, who in turn has a son Jesse, who then has a son David. Thus Ruth is the great grandmother of the same David who slew Goliath, and later became king David who united Israel. (cf. Ruth 4:17) ( Full Answer )

Of course first off, Jesus was born in Bethlehem. After his birth,the Magi (sometimes called the three wise men followed a star toJudea to find him. Before they got to him though, they visited KingHerod. After hearing that they were looking for the one who was born "Kingof the Jews", Herod wanted t…o kill Jesus. The King, Herod the Great consults his experts in the scripturesand directs them to Bethlehem. He then asks them to let him knowwho this king is when they find him. They find Jesus and honor him,but an angel tells them not to alert Herod, and they return home byanother way. After the Magi presented their gifts to Jesus and left: "An angelof the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. Get up, he said, takethe child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until Itell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night andleft for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod.

A: The Gospel of Matthew says that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, the home town of Mary and Joseph, and could have spent up to two years of his life there. When King Herod sought to have Jesus killed, they fled from Bethlehem to Egypt. After Herod's death, they did begin the return journey to Bethle…hem but, again being warned in a dream, turned aside and travelled to a city called Nazareth, in Galilee. After his birth, it is unlikely that Jesus ever returned to Bethlehem. The Gospel of Luke also says that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, after Mary and Joseph travelled from their home in Nazareth for a census. A few days after the birth of Jesus, they travelled to Jerusalem and then returned to their home in Nazareth. The young family travelled to Jerusalem each year for the Passover, but seem never to have gone further to the town on Bethlehem. After his birth, it is unlikely that Jesus ever returned to Bethlehem. None of the gospels contains any suggestion that Jesus went to Bethlehem during his adult life. ( Full Answer )

A: The Book of Ruth is identified as a work of fiction set some timein the latter part of the period of the Judges, but at least twogenerations before the time of Samuel. Nevertheless, Carol Meyers(Kinship and Kingship: The Early Monarchy, published in The OxfordHistory of the Biblical World) says …the Book of Ruth seems toprovide evidence about the premonarchic period. Ruth 4:1 mentionsthe city "gate", which would mean there was a wall. As the Book ofRuth was written long after the period of the Judges, thisreference should be treated with caution.
