Day 5 & 6

Day 5

Micah 5:2
But thou, Beth-lehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
What does this scripture foretell about Bethlehem?

Luke 2:1. 3-6

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Cæsar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. 
And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
  And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
  To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
  And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

Day 6

3 Nephi 1:4-9

And it came to pass that in the commencement of the ninety and second year, behold, the prophecies of the prophets began to be fulfilled more fully; for there began to be greater signs and greater miracles wrought among the people.
  But there were some who began to say that the time was past for the words to be fulfilled, which were spoken by Samuel, the Lamanite.
  And they began to rejoice over their brethren, saying: Behold the time is past, and the words of Samuel are not fulfilled; therefore, your joy and your faith concerning this thing hath been vain.
  And it came to pass that they did make a great uproar throughout the land; and the people who believed began to be very sorrowful, lest by any means those things which had been spoken might not come to pass.
  But behold, they did watch steadfastly for that day and that night and that day which should be as one day as if there were no night, that they might know that their faith had not been vain.
  Now it came to pass that there was a day set apart by the unbelievers, that all those who believed in those traditions should be put to death except the sign should come to pass, which had been given by Samuel the prophet.

What had happened in the 5 years since Samuel had prophesied?
