Answers to some Bible questions

Acts.7  So Jacob went down into Egypt, and died, he, and our fathers, And were carried over into Sychem, ( Gen.33:18 city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, )
and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought
for a sum of money of the sons of Emmor the father of Sychem.
All scriptures are talking about the SAME land in Canaan. Stephen just mentioned that a sepulchre that Abraham bought.
Emmor the father of Sychem and Hamor the father of Shechem ARE THE SAME!
Example- notice the name Rahab and Rachab, they are the same person:

Matt.2  And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.
Answer: Micah2:23 is not the prediction.
This has to be explained correct.
A Nazarene is a TYPE or SHADOW of YESHUA.
Num.6 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall
separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:
 He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried.
 All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.
 All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no rasor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.
 All the days that he separateth himself unto the LORD he shall come at no dead body.
and so on...
Samson, a Nazarite, a deliverer: is a type or shadow of Yeshua
Judg.13 Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not
any unclean thing:
 For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no rasor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.
 Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of God came unto me, and his countenance was like the countenance of an angel of God, very terrible: but I asked him not whence he was, neither told he me his name:
 But he said unto me, Behold, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, neither eat any unclean thing: for the child shall be a Nazarite to God from the womb to the day of his death.
Isaiah Chap. 11 verse 1, where the Messiah is called the Branch (Heb., neh-tzer), meaning the separated One, or “the Nazarene.”
Are these contradictory? Not at all when the Person came who unlocked the puzzle by the course of events in His divinely ordained life.
He was born in Bethlehem, as Micah said; soon after, He was taken to Egypt by Joseph and Mary, from whence God “called” Him back to the Holy Land after the death of wicked King Herod (Matthew Chap. 2 verses 13-21). And when Joseph and Mary came back to Israel with the Child Jesus, they settled in Nazareth, the city where the Lord was reared.16 Hence, in His ministry He was called “Jesus of Nazareth” (Luke Chap. 18 verse 37; Acts Chap. 2 verse 22).
Isn’t it strange that, though He was born in Bethlehem, no one ever calls Him “Jesus of Bethlehem,” and though He is called “Jesus of Nazareth,” everyone knows He was born in Bethlehem, not Nazareth! Being of the tribe of Judah, and born in Bethlehem, He was indeed a true Nazarene,” a “separated one,” by living in Galilee instead of with
his Judean brethren in Judah! Even as Joseph of old also was separated (“Nazared”) from his brethern by his exile for so many years in Egypt (see Genesis Chap. 49 verse 26, where the word “separate” comes from the Hebrew root nazar). The historical record of the life of Jesus makes crystal clear these three so called contradictory prophecies.
Matt.2 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
Hos.11 When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.
This has to be explained correct.
Israel, who is Jacob, is a TYPE or SHADOW of YESHUA.
Through Jacob's line the Messiah would come and all nations would be Blessed.
Gen.28:14] And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to
the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed
shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
