Tour > Bethlehem
The “little town of Bethlehem” is a small but immeasurably vital site of Jesus’ birth and a must-see location in the Holy Land.
In recent years, Bethlehem has experienced great hardship and struggle. Amidst the picturesque landscape of locations like Shepherds’ Field and the historical significance of the Church of the Nativity is the stark atmosphere of an Arab town that has persecuted both Jews and Christians, causing the once majority Christian population to dwindle to merely a fraction of what it once was. Yet those who remain are still holding the testimony of Christianity, their beautifully handcrafted olivewood items a tangible reminder of their hope and faith as a community.
