Jesus manger
*Question: "Why was Jesus born in a manger?"

Answer: * It is a common saying at Christmastime that Jesus Christ was
“born in a manger.” Of course, it wasn’t possible for Him to
actually be born /in/ the manger, but that’s where Mary laid Him after
His birth (Luke 2:7). Although we are not sure of the exact location of
where Jesus was born, we do know that it was near Bethlehem and that there
was a manger, or feeding trough, there.

God promised the Savior’s virgin birth immediately after
mankind’s first sin in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:15). Hundreds of
years later, the prophet Micah foretold the birth of Christ in the small
town of Bethlehem: “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small
among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler
over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times” (Micah
5:2). This prophecy was fulfilled when Jesus’ earthly parents, Mary
and Joseph, were called to Bethlehem for a census of the entire Roman
territory (Luke 2:1–5). While they were in Bethlehem, the time came for
Jesus to be born
