“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
though you are small among the clans of Judah,
out of you will come for Me
one who will be ruler over Israel,
whose origins are from of old,
from ancient times.”
Christmas is the perfect time to reflect on Bethlehem, the birth place of our Savior Jesus Christ. Step back in time with 20 beautiful black and white photo postcards to glimpse the landscape as well as the people who walk daily in the place where Jesus was born.
Close your eyes and experience the calming fragrance of a candle hand poured in Israel. Taste the delicious peppermint dark chocolate from the Holy Cocao Company or make Halva Almond Swirl Cookies (recipe included) with Rusty's Nut Butter.
You also receive story cards about each of the Israel Artisans. What a great family time activity to read and pray for each knowing you have supported them by purchasing an Artza box.
Many items such as the Bethlehem decorative plate and the Tables Talk cards can be used as conversation starters for family or friends even possibly being able to bring up the story of Bethlehem and sharing Jesus with someone.
"So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
You can visit Artza's website for subscription box pricing and other boxes which will be available during this next year. You may feel like it's a lot to spend on yourself or one person. I'm going to divide up the items in my Bethlehem box and share it with several other people as Christmas gifts. How unique to be able to share the smells, tastes, artwork, etc. from Israel with others!
All items comes securely wrapped and packed in an attractive box. Here's a glimpse of all you receive in the Bethlehem box with a premium subscription:

Special note: We do preview the websites to which we link, but are unable to peruse them completely. We try to check others' faith statements and make sure they do profess Jesus Christ as God's Son and salvation is found only in Him. It must, however, be your responsibility to personally dig into God's Word and allow the Holy Spirit to be your first and final teacher on all subjects.
