Bethlehem vs Bethlehem

Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) archaeologists have strong evidence that Jesus was born not in Bethlehem of tribe Judah, but more than 100 miles north in Bethlehem in Galilee. In 2012, Bethlehem in Judah was wrongly awarded the world heritage site status. All because a church centuries ago wanted to put all its eggs in one basket! They made Jerusalem and the City of David the centre for Holy Pilgrimages. Even though they got it wrong, just as they did with the biblical place of the crucifixion, Golgotha, Aramaic for Skull aka Calvary from Latin calva: ‘bald head’ or ‘skull’ mentioned in the canonical Gospels. (Matthew 27:33, Mark 15:22, Luke 23:33, and John 19:17). Yet, the Catholic/Orthodox churches say the Church of the Holy Sepulchre lies over the place of Jesus’ crucifixion. A Catholic custom according to traditions dating back to the fourth century (?). Emperor Constantine (306-337 CE) claimes the Church of Rome to be the builder of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem c. 326 CE, completed by 335 CE. However, that cannot be! As it original name was Ναὸς της Αναστάσεως, English: the Temple of Anastasis (Resurrection). Constantine the Great was a Roman emperor, and all governing administration undertook in Latin, not Greek. Byzantium officially replaced its official language from Latin three centuries after Constantine to Greek in 620 CE. That is just one example of the ancient church getting it wrong?

As I aforesaid, Bethlehem was another place that the church got it wrong! The IAA archaeologists for the last decade made the Christian community aware of their findings at Bethlehem of Galilee. Yet, the information has fallen on deaf ears, with the ignorance and belligerences of a tyrannical ancient Roman emperor.

nota bene. The Israel Antiquities Authority says archaeologists have found the oldest artefact that bears the inscription of Bethlehem, a 2,700-year-old clay seal with the name of Jesus’ traditional birthplace. Emperor Justinian (527–565) built a fortification wall around Bethlehem in Galilee to protect the Holly site. Parts of walls that circled the village are evident today. Israeli archaeologists say that Bethlehem in Galilee during the 1st-century was inhabited. Whereas Bethlehem in Judah was not in 1st-century CE.  

It was after the reign of Justinian that the church replaced Bethlem in Galilee with Bethlehem of the tribe of Judah.  More evidence of Bethlehem in Galilee being the birthplace of Jesus is from Jewish and Christian biblical sources. See Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges Judges 12:8 and see Joshua 19:15  Would it not be more feasible for a heavily pregnant woman to ride a donkey the 7 miles from Nazareth to Bethlehem of Galilee rather than the 150+ miles from Nazareth the Bethlehem in Judah?

I know most conservative Christians will be blinkered and blinded to what my research states, albeit with all citations from Jewish and Christian biblical sources. They will prefer to believe their own indoctrination before the (Holly) written word of their scriptures and follow their Pastors and go for Bethlehem of the Tribe of Judah. Otherwise, they would believe that the taxation of Joseph, his long journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem in Judah, and the birth of Jesus in the city of David will destroy the Messiahship that never was. There is no shame in admitting one is wrong. What is better, to live knowing the truth or die knowing you lived a lie.  

Do you agree or not that the early Church caused a historic blunder when they created a mythical religious birthplace for their so-called saviour, what do you say?
