Rich Freeman, DMin
References to Bethlehem often appear in Christmas songs, cards, and devotionals. The prophet Micah wrote that Israel’s future ruler would be born in Bethlehem (Mic 5:2–5a). These verses, though, do much more than just name the Messiah’s birthplace. They also indicate the Messiah’s eternal nature and universal reign. In this episode, we discuss why Bethlehem is significant and what this prophecy tells us about Jesus.
Our guest is Rich Freeman, DMin. After placing his trust in Jesus the Messiah, he pursued vocational ministry and has pastored several churches and messianic congregations. He has served with Chosen People Ministries since 1999 as Vice President of Church Ministries and Conferences.
