      Matthew's version, making Bethlehem the home of Joseph and Mary until they
      are driven away by Herod's pogrom, makes good sense for a descendant of
      David, of the tribe of Judah. It also means that Jesus was not born a
      Galilean.

      Can anyone steer me toward evidence that tribal affiliations remained in
      force in Galilee, and might include people from the southern tribes?

      Regards,
