3. The Journey to Bethlehem


Almost 9 months later, when Caesar Augustus ruled, Joseph had to travel to his home town to be counted for a census. It meant leaving his home town Nazareth with Mary and travelling all the way to Bethlehem. It was a long journey through hills, woods and trails – about 30 miles. Perhaps they travelled by donkey?

Quiz – Question 3
