RABBI 14 Micah 5:2 - Out of  Bethlehem:  Israel's ruler.

University of the future


   Commentaries from ancient Jewish Rabbis who lived righteous lives point to and identify The Man:   the Messiah of Israel.

    Although not Scripture, the writings of various Targums and the Sanhedrin confirm the identity of the Messiah.  Both appearances of  Messiah are clearly identified by ancient rabbinical writings.

    God called one man, the man Abraham, to bring forth a nation.  And He called that nation, Israel, to bring forth The Man:  the Messiah!

Micah 5:2

   "Out of thee, Bethlehem, shall Messiah go forth before me, to exercise dominion over Israel.  Whose name has been spoken from of old, from the day of eternity."   [Targum Jonathan]

    "Out of thee, Bethlehem, shall come forth the MESSIAH, the son of David."  [R. Jarchi] 
[See also "Son of David]

    Yeshua's earthly family (Joseph and Mary), although living in Galilee in the city of Nazareth, had to travel to Judea unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, to be taxed (because Joseph was of the house and
lineage of David).  While they were there Y'shua was born; his earthly birth-mother still being a virgin; fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah and also Micah 5:2.  [Isaiah 7:14 and Micah 5:2]
