8. JESUS OF NAZARETH IS BORN IN BETHLEHEM

We look this week at the birth narratives of Jesus in Matthew 1:18-2:23 and Luke 2:1-39. How did Matthew and Luke deal with the problem of a Jesus of Nazareth who was supposed to be born in Bethlehem?  What are the various views in Bible Scholarship on Jesus?  Do the mythicists have a case?  Did the Magi actually visit Jesus in Nazareth and not Bethlehem? Is there a way to reconcile the stories?
