Inside the Church of the Nativity


The "traditional" spot of Jesus' Birth. There�s an interesting story about the star in this photo. One time it was stolen, and a small regional war erupted over its theft. The winning side obviously returned it and bolted it in place.


In Nazareth, a Byzantine church was built over the place where it is believed that the angel Gabriel announced to the Virgin Mary that shewould give birth to the savior Jesus. (copyright www.bibleplaces.com)
