Wesley's Notes for Luke 2:6


2:6 And while they were there, the days were fulfilled that she should be delivered - Mary seems not to have known that the child must have been born in Bethlehem, agreeably to the prophecy. But the providence of God took care for it.


People's Bible Notes for Luke 2:6


Lu 2:6 And so it was. Mary and Joseph, when journeying to Bethlehem, were probably ignorant of the fact that they were helping to fulfill the prophecy that pointed to Bethlehem as the birthplace of Christ.

    God says to Moses For I am a JEALOUS God yet God also instructs Moses that human vanity jealously is a sin. God also commanded though shall not kill,yet He assisted Joshua in murdering all caanintes. Hard to inturpet as just.
