Where was Jesus's birthplace?

where was Jesus really born, I know the Catholics beleive it to be Bethlehem but I heard it was not?:confused:

***Every ***tradition surrounding the birth of Jesus has it taking place in Bethlehem. Modern “scholars” who deny any historical value to the Gospels pick and choose what to accept from the Gospels and what to reject based on prejudices against faith and tradition.
