The thobe jacket symbol links the people of Judea in Israel with the Banjaras and other nomadic tribes. The origin of this symbol seems to be in Cappadocia.

Bethlehem never became an ancient center for the Messianic faith. The Magi’s quickly returned back home, and the Messiah at the age of two, had to escape to Egypt to avoid being assassinated. A mass murder of Israeli toddler boys took place. A horrific man mad disaster, that must have set these Judea hills back for the next couple of decades. The family of the Messiah never returned to this town in Judea, but settled in Nazareth in Northern Israel. (…) The global evangelical Church considers the day of Pentecost 30 years later as the birth of the Church. Jews from Cappadocia were present during this festival in Jerusalem and came to faith. (…) When the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 70. A.D, the city seized to be a commercial center for trade. The temple worship had been terminated, and the building left in ruins. Nomadic caravans had no longer any business to do here. For the next 200 years, Asia Minor became the regional center for the Messianic faith. (…). Today’s Christians in Bethlehem can not explain the origin of the main symbol of their thobes, their national dress. Simply because the village of Bethlehem since the 16th century have been influenced by Western Europe inspired Christendom, with the pope as its leader. Rome has twisted the original message, and confused millions of believers with false narratives. (…) The symbol of the first centuries Messianic faith can be found in the secret cave churches of Cappadocia. The symbol of Bethlehem match the Three Cross Cave Church symbol. This symbol has inspired Nomadic tribes from the Tuareg Berbers in the West, Kutchi’s in Afghanistan, to Rabaris and Gor Banjaras in the East.
