Mary gave birth to Jesus in in a manger at Bethlehem, after which they were visited by shepherds and they then travelled to Jerusalem and back to Nazareth.In Matthew's Gospel, Mary and Joseph had a house, and Bethlehem seems to have been their home town. When Jesus was born in Bethlehem, magi came to visit him. Mary and Joseph were warned not to go to Jerusalem, but to flee from Bethlehem to Egypt.

Mary and Joseph thought Jesus was with their friends.

In Luke's Gospel, they left Bethlehem and travelled to Galilee, stopping of at Jerusalem to visit the Temple. Each year, they travelled to Jerusalem for the Passover, but apparently never revisited Bethlehem.In Matthew's Gospel, they left Bethlehem and travelled to Egypt, where they remained until King Herod died. Although they had never previously been to Galilee, they then travelled to Nazareth in Galilee, so that Jesus might be called a Nazarene (Matthew 2:24).

AnswerAccording to Luke's Gospel, Joseph, Mary and Jesus left Bethlehem within a few weeks of the birth, as soon as the time had arrived for her purification. they travelled to Jerusalem and then left peacefully to go home to Galilee.According to Matthew's Gospel, Joseph, Mary and Jesus fled to Egypt from Bethlehem when King Herod ordered the slaughter of all the infants under two years old. This implies that Jesus was no longer a new-born baby, but that less than two years had gone by.

AnswerThis is Matthew's version of the nativity story. Joseph took Mary and Jesus to Egypt after the wise men left, to escape the wrath of Herod.

The Magi were the wise men who came from the east in search of the newborn King of the Jews. They were guided to where Jesus, Mary and Joseph were staying in Bethlehem where they left gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Jesus left Bethlehem to escape to Egypt

Jesus was in Jerusalem when he was 12 and was in the temple. His parents, Mary and Joseph, thought he was with friends and relatives when they left to return to Bethlehem. When they bedded down for the night He was not to be found. Mary and Joseph found Him in the temple discussing scriptures. He was not aware that they had worried about him because He thought they would know that the whole trip was for religious purposes and where else would He be.

In Matthew's Gospel, the baby Jesus left Bethlehem with his parents, bound for Egypt in order to escape the wrath of King Herod. They returned years later, after the death of Herod, but being warned in a dream, turned aside and migrated to Nazareth in Galilee. In Luke's Gospel, the baby Jesus left Bethlehem with his parents, bound for Jerusalem where he was to be presented in the Temple, in accordance with Jewish custom. They then travelled peacefully to Nazareth in Galilee, the home of Joseph and Mary.

If Mary and Joseph left Bethlehem to flee to Egypt, as stated in Matthew's Gospel, they would certainly have walked, since travelling on horseback would have drawn attention to themselves.If Mary and Joseph left Bethlehem to return to Nazareth via Jerusalem, as stated in Luke's Gospel, they could have travelled on horseback if they had sufficient money to afford to do so, but Luke's Gospel tells us they were so poor they could only offer two pigeons as a sacrifice in the Temple. In this story, they must have walked from Nazareth to Bethlehem and then back again.

Luke's Gospel says that Nazareth was the home town of Joseph and Mary, so they simply left Bethlehem and travelled to Jerusalem to sacrifice at the temple, then travelled peacefully back to their home in Nazareth.Matthew's Gospel tells us that Bethlehem was the home town of Joseph and Mary, but that they had to leave Bethlehem after the birth of Jesus and travel to Egypt, as King Herod sought to have him killed. After Herod's death, they began the return journey to Bethlehem, but turned aside because Herod's son Archelaus was a continuing danger in Judea. The young family travelled to the safety of Galilee, where they settled in a town called Nazareth so that Jesus would be called a Nazarene (Matthew 2:23).

AnswerAccording to Luke's Gospel, Herod appears to have had no interest in Jesus, Mary or Joseph, and allowed them (if he even knew) to visit the Temple for Mary's purification, then return peacefully to Nazareth. According to Matthew's Gospel, Herod ordered the slaughter of all the infants in and around Bethlehem, in the hope of killing Jesus.The clear discrepancy between the two gospel accounts could be resolved by referring to the detailed history, Antiquities of the Jews, published by the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus in 93 CE. Scholars are certain that , if Josephus had known of the Slaughter of the Innocents, he would certainly have reported it. The fact that Josephus made no reference to this event is confirmation that Matthew's account is factually inaccurate. Herod did nothing when Mary and Joseph left Bethlehem.

There is stories or thoughts like: The Nativity-Mary and Joseph and the baby Jesus The Wedding of cana-Where Jesus made his first miracle The Presentation of Jesus at the Temple-Jesus left Mary and Joseph and couldn't find him, they were looking for days! There are lots of stories and thoughts that you can have of Mary! By Annabel Age:10 19/11/2012

Joseph and Mary weren't really exiled. They fled from the wrath of Herod and were warned by God to go to avoid this. Herod would have killed Jesus if he could - thus it was for Jesus' sake, not their own, that they left.

A:In Matthew's Gospel, magi visited baby Jesus when he was born or soon afterwards, in Bethlehem. Because they had alerted King Herod to the presence of Jesus in Bethlehem, Joseph and Mary had to flee from there to Egypt, where they remained until Herod was dead. Magi are variously thought of as wise men or as kings, but the name magi actually refers to priests of the Zoroastrian religion of Persia.In Luke's Gospel, shepherds visited baby Jesus quite soon after he was born, in Bethlehem. Then the young family left Bethlehem and travelled peacefully back to their home in Nazareth, stopping on the way, to present Jesus in the Temple.

A:In Matthew's Gospel, Mary and Joseph took the baby Jesus from Bethlehem to Egypt out of fear of King Herod, who sought to have Jesus killed. After Herod died, they began the return journey to their home in Bethlehem, but were warned in a dream that Archelaus, Herod's son and successor as king of Judea, was still a danger to Jesus. They therefore turned aside and travelled to start a new home in the city of Nazareth in Galilee, out of reach of Archelaus. King Herod died in April 4 BCE and Archelaus was deposed by the Romans in 6 CE. Matthew's Gospel is therefore telling us that Jesus, Mary and Joseph left Jesus sometime between 4 BCE and 6 CE.Luke's Gospel does not have the young family go to Egypt, since Nazareth was already their home.

A:After the death of King Herod, Joseph set out with Mary and Jesus to return to their home in Bethlehem. However, being warned in a dream of further danger from Herod's son and successor, Archelaus, they turned aside and travelled to Galilee, where they settled in a city called Nazareth (Matthew 2:23).

A:Nothing in the gospel accounts ever suggested that Joseph had any other wife before Mary, mother of Jesus. However, the Church gradually began to emphasise the virginity of Mary, until it became dogma that she remained a virgin throughout her life. Simce Jesus is clearly described as having brothers and sisters in the care of Mary, this had to be explained away by proposing that they were the older children of Joseph but not of Mary, or that they were not real brothers but only cousins.Joseph could not have had older children by a previous wife, since neither nativity account mentions them at the time of Jesus:In Luke's Gospel, it is implausible that he would have left his other children alone in Galilee while he took Mary with him to Bethlehem. Nor is it possible that his other children had grown to adulthood by the time Jesus was born, if only because this brings into question why he took Mary on an arduous and dangerous journey in her late pregnancy if he had sons and daughters who could care for her. Paul portrayed James as still young and energetic enough to lead the Church in the fifties of the first century, when such a hypothesis would make him at least eighty, a great age for a commoner at that time.In Matthew's Gospel, Joseph and Mary lived in Bethlehem, but there is no mention of other children. The gospel makes it clear that only Joseph, Mary and Jesus fled from Bethlehem to Egypt, so we can rule out any other children of Joseph at that time. And once again, Paul's epistle rules out James and his younger brothers and sisters from Joseph having already grown to adulthood by the time Jesus was born.Mary's close relationship with Jesus' brothers and sisters, even in adulthood, points to them being her own biological children.

They left to go to Bethlehem because at that time everyone had to go to the place of their birth or where their family was from to pay their taxes or something, I think. And since Joseph's family was from Bethlehem he had to go there to pay his taxes. Then he stayed in Bethlehem for a while until Mary had Jesus and Joseph had a dream where an angel appeared to him and told him to go to Egypt because king Herod was after Jesus because the wise men told king herod they were going to see Jesus who was a newborn king and so then he was scared that Jesus was going to steal his king power do he started killing all newborn Hebrew babies. This is why Joseph and Mary couldn't stay in Israel (the country that Nazareth and Bethlehem are in) and they had to stay in Egypt for a while until king Herod stopped killing all the Hebrew babies because he thought he had killed Jesus.

If Mary and Joseph left Nazareth because of the census undertaken in the time of Quirinius, they must have left in the year 6 CE, more than ten years after the death of King Herod, because that is when Quirinius was governor of Syria and that is also the year of the first Roman census in the Levant.On the other hand, Matthew's Gospel says that Nazareth was not the home town of Mary and Joseph until long after the birth of Jesus, since this gospel describes Bethlehem as their home town and says that they only turned aside and travelled to Nazareth after returning from Egypt. The best explanation for this is given by Raymond E. Brown (An Introduction to the New Testament), who says that, although Luke likes to set his Christian drama in the context of well-known events from antiquity, sometimes he does so inaccurately. If Luke was carelessly inaccurate about his historical facts, we can not say when or whether Mary and Joseph began a journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem.

Matthew's gospel (the only one to tell of the sojourn to Egypt - Matt. 2:13-23) doesn't provide any details that answer the question.

Mary is the mother of Jesus Christ and not his wife.

1. The first place Mary, Jesus and Joseph 'traveled' was into a 'house'.2. Then after the astrologers left, Joseph was warned by God, to take his family to Egypt.Jesus, of course, was born in a stable, but by the time the astrologers(often called 'the three kings' or 'wise men'), found Jesus, his family had moved into a HOUSE, and Jesus was now a YOUNG CHILD. Matthew 2:11&12Next, with Herod trying to kill Jesus(now a toddler), Joseph was warned to take his family to Egypt until Herod died. (Matthew 2:13-15)

I suppose it was his mother and father, Mary and Joseph, for all the family and friends were left behind when they all fled into Egypt.
