Bethlehem was a little town in Judea when Christ was born there, and today (pictured above) it is still a small middle easter town. There is little to differentiate it from other places, and yet Christ chose this location to be born.
Christ has always been on one hand quick to avoid the limelight, and humble in all His dealings, such as His humble birth at a location like Bethlehem. And on the other hand His life was touched by great glory, such as the vast choirs of Heaven singing for His birth. Such glory and humility combined.
