"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. (Matthew 2:23)"
Ummm... Jesus was a Nazarene because he belonged to the Judaic sect called the Nazarenes; it had nothing to do with living in Nazareth. "Jesus of Nazareth" is actually a misnomer. But, as usual, most Xians don't know this.
