Does It Snow In Bethlehem?


How far was Bethlehem located from Moab in book of Ruth?

"A certain man of Bethlehem-judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab". Moab was not very far away from Bethlehem. In fact, you could see Moab from Bethlehem. Moab was across the Jordan and the Dead Sea from Bethlehem. To get to Moab from Bethlehem, one had to travel only twenty to thirty miles. This was not a long trip like the one Abraham took to Egypt in a time of famine. This was a very short trip.

where is Bethlehem?

really confused, please help me. . . yeah i know Bethlehem is in Nazareth but what country,county,continent etc. is it in?

Bethlehem is not in Nazareth.
Both are in Israel but Nazareth is substantially further north.
Bethlehem is in Judea and Nazareth in the Galile.
In modern politics, Nazareth is in northern Israel, Bethlehem is "beyond the green line" in the West Bank "palestinian territories"
If you're trying to understand the whole Jesus thing, he was born in Bethlehem, his family fled to Egypt and then they resettled in Nazareth when he was an adult.

I need lyrics to "We're not that far from Bethlehem"?

I have to practice it for a Christmas singing and I don't know all the words. Help!!

Underneath the stars
Just a simple man and wife
Somewhere in the dark
His words cut the silent night
Take my hand, for the child
That you carry is God's own
And though it seems the road is long


We're not that far from Bethlehem
Where all our hope and joy begins
For in our arms we'll cherish him
We're not that far, not that far from Bethlehem

Let us celebrate
As the Christmases go by
Learn to live our days
With our hearts near to the child
Ever drawn, ever close
To the only love that lasts
And though 2000 years have passed


We're not that far from Bethlehem
Where all our hope and joy began
For in our hearts still cherish him
We're not that far, not that far from Bethlehem

Does anyone know what the temperature and general weather conditions were in Bethlehem abot 2000 years ago?

We tend to believe that the 'White Christmas' of the Northern Europeans and North Americans is the appropriate weather for celebrating Christmas. During the Sydney summers, for example, we have images of snowmen, and snow sleighs, to represent the season. But was it cold and snowing in Bethlehem at the time?

the temperature is never change. the climate in Israel has been essentially constant for at least the last 2,000 years. The temperature in the area of Bethlehem in December averages around 44 degrees Fahrenheit (7 degrees Celsius) but can drop to well below freezing, especially at night. when it comes to frost the temperature could be 29 F. (minus 1.6 C.). its gonna be so cold so people would do nothing but stay indoor.
