The view from Bethlehem vs. the view from Jerusalem
This past Sunday we celebrated Epiphany and I preached on Matthew 2:1-12, the story of the Magi traveling to visit the child Jesus. For any who are interested, this is the article by Walter Brueggeman that I was working off of in my sermon. He draws a contrast between Jerusalem and Bethlehem, as I mentioned Sunday, which I found helpful and powerful.
