This is a wonderful post about the probable location of Yeshua/Jesus's birth.
Alfred Edersheim wrote 'The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah', in 1883.
In his book, he quotes the prophet Micah:
Micah 4:8. “And thou, O tower of the flock the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.”showing that the 'tower of the flock', (Hebrew, 'Migdal Eder') near Bethlehem, was the place where Messiah would first be revealed to Israel and the world.
Its location today has been competently demonstrated here.
It is wonderful to me that the Tower of the Flock was the place, supervised by the Temple shepherds, to which the newborn lambs were brought, for inspection, before being permitted for Temple sacrifice.
