    Bethlehem is not in Nazareth.

    Both are in Israel but Nazareth is substantially further north.

    Bethlehem is in Judea and Nazareth in the Galile.

    In modern politics, Nazareth is in northern Israel, Bethlehem is "beyond the green line" in the West Bank "palestinian territories"

    If you're trying to understand the whole Jesus thing, he was born in Bethlehem, his family fled to Egypt and then they resettled in Nazareth when he was an adult.

    Bethlehem is located about 10 miles south of Jerusalem, Israel. Nazareth is about 60 miles north of Jerusalem, Israel.

    There is also a Bethlehem and Nazareth in Pennsylvania, but I think you are referring to the one's in Israel.

    Bethlehem is a city in Judea. Nazareth is also a city in Judea. They are in the Middle East, in the area we call the Holy Land. Look on a map for Egypt, and then look up a little ways, and you'll find Israel and Judea. If you have a Bible, it may have maps in the back, and you can look on the maps for these 2 cities.
