  Church of Nativity
by traveloturc
 
 

The Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem is one of the oldest continuously operating churches in the world. The structure is built over the cave that tradition marks as the birthplace of Christ, and it is considered sacred by followers of both Christianity and Islam.
According to the Qur'an, Jesus was born to Mary (Arabic: Maryam) as the result of virginal conception, a miraculous event which occurred by the decree of God . To aid him in his quest, Jesus was given the ability to perform miracles, all by the permission of God.
