Born King of the Jews: Reframe

Now when Yahshua (Jesus) was born in Bethlehem of Judaea during the days of Herod the king, much was going on in Jerusalem. First, there was a strange visit from a group of wise men from the eastern countries to visit Jerusalem. They came searching for the One who was born King of the Jews.

These wise men asked the Jerusalem officials about a young child. They declared they’d seen His star in the east and had come to worship Him. This was reported to king Herod who was already an extremely panic driven, violent man; especially concerning any news of his throne.

The news bothered him greatly and news like this simply troubled all of Jerusalem because of what Herod was capable of doing. Immediately, Herod gathered together all of the chief priests and scribes of Jerusalem, and he demanded they tell him where the Anointed One should and would be born.

Born King of the Jews

They opened the scrolls of Malachi the prophet’s writings and declared to Herod, “In Bethlehem of Judah!” “This is where it is written by the prophet,” they declared, “And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are not you the least among the princes of Judah, but out of you will come a Governor that will rule my people Israel.”

When Herod learned this he set his plan to have the child killed. He privately called the wise men to him and interrogated them diligently to learn when the star appeared to them.

He allowed them to go to Bethlehem to see the child and when they found the young child, Herod asked that they bring him word of where the child was so that he could also worship the child.

They left and continued to follow the star they saw from the east. The star rested above where the young child was and they were joyful and excited. They came into the house and laid eyes on the young child and his mother Mary, as they fail down and worshipped the King.

Presentation of Gifts Before the King

The wise men also presented gifts before the King, gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. When they rested that night, they were shown a dream, a warning from God that they should not return to Jerusalem. They should not go back to Herod, was the urgency of the dream!

Thus they decided to depart to their country in another direction. When they departed, the angel of the LORD appeared to Joseph also in a dream and commanded he also “got to moving.” He was ordered to take the young child and his mother and flee into Egypt.

Joseph had to stay there with his family until the angel of the LORD told him to leave Egypt. Herod would seek the young child to destroy the child, Joseph learned from the dream.

Fled to Egypt… Also Called Out of Egypt

The husband of Mary got up and took the young child in the night, along with Mary, and fled into Egypt. They remained in Egypt until the death of Herod. And it was fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, Hoshea, who wrote, I called My son out of Egypt.

When Herod saw that the wise men were not going to return to him, he felt mocked and was very angry. The act to preserve the Anointed One would cost Jerusalem thousands of young babies.

Herod ordered the massacre of all the children born in Bethlehem and in all the coasts around it. From the ages of two years and under, they were ordered to be killed.

Herod covered all age groups from the time the wise men came to see him concerning the One born King of the Jews.

Joseph, Mary, Jesus Return to Israel

Once again, there was a fulfilled prophecy spoken this time by Jeremiah the prophet, which said; “In Ramah was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.”

It was a tumultuous time in Bethlehem of Judah. After the death of Herod, the angel of the LORD again appeared to Joseph in a dream while he was still in Egypt. The angel of the LORD told Joseph to arise and take the young child and his mother to the land of Israel.

The people seeking the child’s life were no longer alive. Joseph did as he was commanded and moved back to the land of Israel. Nevertheless, when Joseph heard that Archelaus took over the rule of Judaea, in the place of his father Herod, he was still a bit concerned.

He was afraid to stay in Jerusalem, and being warned by God in a dream he decided to live in parts of Galilee. This was where he came and dwelled, in a city called Nazareth.

Here also it is fulfilled that which was spoken by the prophets that He will be called a Nazarene.
