Why Did Mary and Joseph Go to Bethlehem?

The Bible tells us Mary and Joseph went to Bethlehem during the reign of Caesar Augustus to register for the census. Such an order would have had a window of compliance, perhaps three months or more. We’re not told why Joseph had to leave at the time Mary was about to deliver.

We’re left to wonder why Mary had to go at all. In that society, the women didn’t count, so Joseph could have gone by

  • david says:

    there was no need to say mary was guilty of fornication, remember jesus sent an angel to this virgin woman to have a child through out lord and to name him jesus. joseph was her betrothed but they did not have sex or else our lord would not have called her a virgin…our lord does not lie andand he himself made note that this child jesus was his child and not joseph’s hwe was the step-father. if the bible says it, i believe.
