Jesus is of the house and lineage of David, a Beth-lehemite; hence the city of David is called Bethlehem (Luke 2:1-4) (1 Samuel 16:1).

“And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel” (Matthew 2:6). “Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?” (John 7:42).
