I have recently begun reading a small book titled Joseph is Alive by B. Michael Blaine. Published in 1995, I am very surprised that I had not heard of it until Dorothy Wilson mentioned it on a recent visit.

Bethlehem, a village in the hill country of Judah, was given to Ephraim, a northern tribe, for a possession. (pg.22)
I dropped my book and grabbed my Bible, but didn’t see anything obvious. Thinking, “how did I miss that,” I continued reading as Blaine began to assemble a compelling case that indeed, Bethlehem, or part of it, belongs to Ephraim!! Continue reading “Does Bethlehem belong to Ephraim?”
