Luke 2:11 questions the reliability of the Biblical Scriptures!

In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent 
 
The words in Luke 2:11 questions the credibility and reliability of the Bible. Imagine today, if the Bible has to be used as an “evidence” source in the High Court to prove the birth place of Christ , the Judge and jury will reject the Bible as an untrustworthy account due to it’s contradiction!.
 
WHERE WAS JESUS CHRIST BORN?
 
According to Luke , Christ was born in the City of David!
 
According to the Gospel of Luke 2:11 Today in the City of David a Savior has been born to you. He is Christ the Lord!
 
According to the Angels Christ was born in the City of David:
 
Luke 2:10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Luke 2:11 Today in the City of David a Savior has been born to you. He is Christ the Lord!
 
Are this Angels truly Angels of the Lord?
 
If your answer is yes,How come the Angels of the Lord do not know the City of David (Jerusalem) and  Bethlehem as different places?
 
1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace–as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people.
 
According to Wikipedia, City of David is Jerusalem
The City of David (Hebrew: עיר דוד‬, Ir David; literal translation to Arabic: مدينة داوود‎, Madina Dawud, common Arabic name: وادي حلوه, Wadi Hilweh) is an Israeli settlement and the archaeological site which is speculated to compose the original urban core of ancient Jerusalem.
 
CHRIST wasn’t born In Jerusalem. Was Bethlehem known as city of David in the time of David and after that?!
 
The Shepherds were not in Bethlehem. 
LUKE 2:15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
Will the Lord Speak to Israel?:

Deuteronomy 18:16 -17

New American Standard Bible
“This is according to all that you asked of the LORD your God in Horeb on the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, let me not see this great fire anymore, or I will die. “The LORD said to me, ‘They have spoken well.
 
The Lord spoke to Shepherds?, No, the Angels spoke to Shepherds!. So the Shepherds calls “angels as the Lord” or sees the Message of Angels as the word of Lord?
 
So We can see that Jesus is not the only Lord in the Gospel, but the Angels too are called Lord or are in one in the Lord as in John 17:21 
 
No mentioning of who looked after the sheep when they left to visit Christ in Bethlehem.
 
So let’s do Some research in to the Biblical History to find out which City is called the City of David!
 
For the Angels to Call the place of birth of the Messiah as ‘City of David, (if this account in the LUKE is true), then it should be part of the scriptures and known to people as the ‘city of David ‘. As the angels do not proclaim human traditions or false testimony!
 
We cannot see in the scriptures before Christ, that Bethlehem was called as the City of David.
 
But the city of David according to the scriptures is “Jerusalem”
 
See 2 Samuel 5: David Conquers Jerusalem
 
6 The king and his men marched to Jerusalem to attack the Jebusites, who lived there. The Jebusites said to David, “You will not get in here; even the blind and the lame can ward you off.” They thought, “David cannot get in here.”7 Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion—which is the City of David.
 
1 Chronicles 15: 1 After David had constructed buildings for himself in the City of David, he prepared a place for the ark of God and pitched a tent for it.
 
1 Chronicles 11:5 The people of Jebus taunted David, saying, “You’ll never get in here!” But David captured the fortress of Zion, which is now called the City of David.
 
2 Samuel 6:10 So David decided not to move the Ark of the LORD into the City of David. Instead, he took it to the house of Obed-edom of Gath.
 
Which is Jerusalem, not Bethlehem
 
Nehemiah 12:37 At the Fountain Gate they continued directly up the steps of the City of David on the ascent to the wall and passed above the site of David’s palace to the Water Gate on the east.
 
Which is again “Jerusalem”.
 
1 Kings 2:10 Then David rested with his ancestors and was buried in the City of David.
 
Isaiah 29:1 New Living Translation
“What sorrow awaits Ariel, the City of David. Year after year you celebrate your feasts.
 
Entire old testament especially the book 2 Chronicle, 2 SAMUEL and Nehemiah calls ‘Jerusalem ‘ as the city of David.
 
So what about the contradiction in GOSPEL of Luke, in Which Angels says to the Shepherds to go to the City of David (Jerusalem) where the Messiah is born, but Shepherds went to Bethlehem which is not called the City of David in the scriptures that existed in that period! Did Shepherd (Were they Jew or Gentiles?) see the Spirit of Antichrist?
Because Antichrist change God’s Words , and God Call Jerusalem as the City of David in the entire Old Testament
 
So we can assume that, Luke just narrated a false testimony in his version of the Gospel!
 
This so called Angels do not know which is the City of David!
 
If the Angels were true Angles then they should know the City of David and are right in their words as the Shepherds say that the words of Angels is the Word of the Lord!
 
LUKE 2:15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
 
if the Lord Who (in the Old Testament books) calls “Jerusalem” as the City of David, then how come the Lord now contradict what he said in the Old Testament and say, Bethlehem is the City of David??
 
1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace–as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people.
 
If the Lord and Angels were right according to the Luke, then Shepherds made a mistake and went to Bethlehem and made a false story of visiting  Jesus , but  Jesus was born in Jerusalem, as the Angels say to the Shepherds that Jerusalem is called the City of David.
 
Luke 2:4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.
 
This is a new idea of Bethlehem being the Town of David,was  propagated in the Gospel of Luke, which was authored decades after Christ’s ascension to the heaven!
 
But the entire scriptures and traditions among Israelite that existed during the birth of Christ, and before Christ, calls the City of David is Jerusalem!. Think, if you were among the Shepherds in those days, 
 
Says God do not write confusion and error
 
Christian Websites describe the Bible as:
 
God has revealed himself in the Bible, which consists of the Old and New Testaments alone. Every word was inspired by God through human authors, so that the Bible as originally given is in its entirety the Word of God, without error and fully reliable in fact and doctrine. The Bible alone speaks with final authority and is always sufficient for all matters of belief and practice.
So which Book in the Bible speaks with Final authority?
So do you still believe this claims are true? And not willing to seek truth and surrender to the Truth
