Bethlehem: בית לחם
Bethlehem. The place of Christ's birth!
I am taking Hebrew as my foreign language, and I was pondering the word "Bethlehem."
"Bet" or "
" is the word for "house." "Lehem," or "
" is the word used for the special temple bread as far as I understand. Not just any bread, it's holy bread.
It hit me: how very FUNNY that the Bread of Life (Jesus) came out of the house of bread!!
