Jesus is the only son of God who was born by the virgin Mary in Bethlehem during the period of Herod. I just realized that Jesus stayed in one of the African countries for a period of 3 years and the reason why he stayed there.
This is after I read the book of Matthew 2;13. His stay in this African country resulted for the Israelites to come and stay on it.
The African country that Jesus stayed for a long period.
According to Matthew 2;13, Joseph was told by Angel Gabriel to flee the young child and his mother into Egypt. This is because King Herod had heard about the birth of Jesus Christ who was the King of Kings and ordered the new born baby boy in Bethlehem to be killed. This is because he feared that Jesus would overthrow him from ruling.
After fleeing to Egypt which is in the northern Africa, they stayed there for three years until after the death of Herod. This is when Joseph had a dream that it is safe to return to Israel. This is according to Matthew 2;19-23, "When Herod died, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, Get up, take the child and his mother, and go to the land of Israel, for those who were seeking the child’s life are dead.’ Then Joseph got up, took the child and his mother, and went to the land of Israel."
