Why was all of Jerusalem troubled about the birth of Jesus?
They said to him, In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written through the prophet, `You Bethlehem, land of Judah, are in no way least among the princes of Judah: for out of you shall come forth a governor, who shall shepherd my people, Israel.` They blindly follow Herod the powerful king and don`t understand that the shepard is a spiritual leader that will lead them to a spiritual kingdom. They hope to be given earthly freedom and not the one from sin. And they follow the pharisees the scribes their authorities. Maybe they havent traesured enough the words of the OT to recognise the Saviour. But the wise men have and they too listen to the angel and dont trust Herod`s false words. An evidently not so fragile 14 years old mother ''and an elderly man'' who has just delivered a baby in a poor manger and a tiny baby give them an overpowering sense of the presence of the Lord that leaves them with no doubt that Herod must not be listened to. Its a different power that makes them faithful to the Lord and not like the rest of Jerusalem to the apparently allpowerful Herod`s army etc array.

Why was all of Jerusalem troubled about the birth of Jesus?
No one wanted to share power, most read the prophecy to be a worldly king like King David not a spiritual king.

The Visit of the Magi

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, "Where is he who is born King of the Jews? For we saw his star in the east, and have come to worship him." When Herod the king heard it, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. Gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he asked them where the Christ would be born. They said to him, "In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written through the prophet,
'You Bethlehem, land of Judah,
are in no way least among the princes of Judah:
for out of you shall come forth a governor,
who shall shepherd my people, Israel.'"
Then Herod secretly called the wise men, and learned from them exactly what time the star appeared. He sent them to Bethlehem, and said, "Go and search diligently for the young child. When you have found him, bring me word, so that I also may come and worship him."
They, having heard the king, went their way; and behold, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, until it came and stood over where the young child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. They came into the house and saw the young child with Mary, his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Opening their treasures, they offered to him gifts: gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Being warned in a dream that they shouldn't return to Herod, they went back to their own country another way.
