Word of the Day - 2/29/2008


Provenance is the place or source of origin.

In the Gospel of John, one of the points of debate from onlookers as to whether or not Jesus was the Christ was his provenance. They asserted that the Messiah was to hail from Bethlehem, while they believed Jesus was born in Nazareth. (John 7:42) They were unaware of accounts of his birth in Bethlehem.
