But, Luke's Gospel says that their home town was Nazareth in Galilee.

New Testament answer:Nazareth (Luke 2:4 and 2:38).

Which Rome was responsible for Mary and Joseph going to Bethlehem?

A:In Luke's Gospel, Caesar Augustus called a census of the entire empire, and the governor of Syria, Publius SulpiciusQuirinius, ordered that everone go to the place of their ancestry to be counted. Joseph was therefore required to travel from Nazareth to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born. In Matthew's Gospel, Bethlehem was already the home town of Mary and Joseph. In this gospel, it was necessary to find a storyline that would eventually take Jesus from Bethlehem to Nazareth: the magi; the flight to Egypt; and when returning to their home in Bethlehem, the dream that caused Joseph to turn aside and travel to a city called Nazareth, in Galilee. This account involves King Herod, but no Roman official.
