But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.

Matthew 2:6

It was a small town, in a small province of the Roman Empire; yet it was made great and famous to this day, by its greatest Son. The prophecy gives a beautiful, heart-warming picture of his character. May we get to know him better, the Shepherd and Overseer of our souls (1 Pet.2:25).
