By New Testament Gospels of Matthew and Luke identify Bethlehem as the birthplace of Jesus Christ. The town was inhabited by one of the oldest Christian communities in the world, but the size of the community has been shrinking due to emigration.Two accounts in the New Testament describe Jesus as born in Bethlehem. According to the Gospel of Luke,] Jesus' parents lived in Nazareth but traveled to Bethlehem for the census of AD 6, and Jesus was born there before the family returned to Nazareth.

The Gospel of Matthew account implies that the family already lived in Bethlehem when Jesus was born, and later moved to Nazareth. Matthew reports that Herod the Great, told that a 'King of the Jews' has been born in Bethlehem, ordered the killing of all the children aged two and under in the town and surrounding areas. Jesus' earthly father Joseph is warned of this in a dream, and the family escapes this fate by fleeing to Egypt and returning only after Herod has died. But being warned in another dream not to return to Judea, Joseph withdraws the family to Galilee, and goes to live in Nazareth.

Currently Bethlehem is under muslim palastine authority control.
