They had to go to a census, and for the census, you had to go to the town of your birth. Since Mary and Joseph were married, instead of Mary going to her hometown, she went with Joseph to his.

AnswerIn Luke's Gospel, Joseph and Mary came from the city of Nazareth to go to Bethlehem.In Matthew's Gospel, Bethlehem seems to have already been the home town of Joseph and Mary. In this gospel, they came from nowhere, and only emigrated to Nazareth some years later, after their sojourn in Egypt.

Mary and Joseph journeyed to Bethlehem from Nazareth (in the north - in the region of Galilee) when Mary was pregnant. Jesus was then born in Bethlehem. The family settled there for two years or more and then returned to nazareth where Jesus grew up. The only other record we have of his childhood was when Mary and Joseph took him on a visit to Jerusalem (NOT Bethlehem) when he was 12 years old.

He traveled from Nazareth to Bethlehem with Mary, where Jesus was born. From Bethlehem he took his family to Egypt. From Egypt they returned to Nazareth.

People in Israel in the time of Jesus did not have last names. They were often called by the name of the town they were from, such as "Jesus of Nazareth" meaning that Jesus was living in Nazareth. Mary and Joseph, Jesus' mother and "foster" father (God was His real father), would probably have been known as something like "Mary of Nazareth" and "Joseph of Nazareth" or something similar.

A:Matthew's Gospel clearly says that Bethlehem was the hometown of Mary and Joseph. When they began the return journey from Egypt after the death of Herod, it was to return to Bethlehem but Joseph was warned in a dream and they instead travelled to Nazareth in Galilee. Luke's Gospel clearly says that Nazareth was the hometown of Mary and Joseph. When Jesus was about to be born, they travelled to Bethlehem in Judea for a census. A few days after the birth of Jesus, they returned to their hometown of Nazareth.
