7. A long way to travel

Their journey takes them over the hills, through rocky lands and desert conditions. They are heading to Bethlehem. Like Nazareth, there is nothing special about it. Once, a long time ago it was the home town of one of the kings of Israel, a man named David. But, now it’s just an ordinary village. Nothing special has happened in Bethlehem for a long time. But that is about to change!
