The Bethlehem Candle

The Bethlehem Candle

Micah 5:2

The second candle on our Advent Wreath reminds us of an O, so little town.  Little in size, but huge when it comes to our salvation history. It’s the prophet Micah who reports this town as God the Father’s selection as the birthplace of his Son, even though that wouldn’t take place for another 700 years: “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from old, from ancient times.”
