The Gospel of John (Apostle John) 1 explains that Immanuel came into the world, and the world knew Him not.
He came unto His own, and His own, received Him not.
The witness(Jn.1:15) is John the Baptist.
The world (chaos) during this time was the House of Israel (10 Northern Tribes), and the House of Judah. Immanuel was born in Jerusalem in a little town of Bethlehem. The details of the birth of Christ was Prophecy - for 4,000 yrs..
Why Jerusalem. This the center of the Tribe of Judah, and Benjamin: which represented the House of Judah. Over time it had become the epicenter of Hypocrites (fakesters). The Roman Empire was in charge, and they appointed Religious-leaders.
Christ went there for good reasons!
"His own" - Mary (Christ Mother), her Cousin Elisabeth (both her Parents, John the Baptist, and Lazarus, we're of the Tribe of Levi. This is the Priest Line. They recognized Christ as Thee-Priest. The majority of the people "did not receive (accept) Him."
Judah was covered in bondage. The citizens were awaiting a Deliverer in the form of a king.
This scene could be replayed in 2017. The Scriptures gave details, but the People missed them. The next deliverer of the world, will be the Fake-Christ (Anti-Christ): sadly, many will flunk this test as well.⏳
