Question: Where did the Lord tell Joseph to take Jesus and Mary?
Joseph and Mary taking Jesus and fleeing to Egypt is the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecy found in Hosea 11:1 "When Israel was a child, then I loved him, And called my son out of Egypt.". King Herad responded by ordering the death of all boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who are two years and younger. This was the fulfillment of the prophecy found in Jeremiah 31:15 "A voice is heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping, Rachel weeping for her children; she refuses to be comforted for her children, because they are no more."
Based on Matthew 2:13-18
