  • What was the star of Bethlehem ?

    The account in the New Testament is historical and factual. The wise men were actual men who traveled from the east. If I say they came from east of Jerusalem, that would mean just east of that city. But it says they came from the East. That means the region a far east as is known. Daniel was taken to Babylon and then Persia and he established a school in those lands. That school studied the Holy Scriptures and also the stars and planets. This would leave them with knowledge from the scriptures that the Messiah was going to be born soon, and also knowledge about the heavenly bodies and how they changed.

    We have computer programs that can turn back the sky to any time in the past. One can find out that The King planet ( Jupiter) and the King star (Regulus) had some very rare conjunctions during those days. These events took place at the conception of Jesus, again at His birth, and again when the wise men visited Israel. There was also a very rare event when Jesus died on the cross.

    So the wise men were probably of Jewish decent, or became Jews, and traveled from the far East to worship the Messiah. They certainly were not of any false religion. Since they came to worship Jesus, they were certainly Christians well before the name “Christian” had been coined.

    Psalm 19 NIV

    For the director of music. A psalm of David.

    1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
    2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
    3 They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
    4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.

    In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
    5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
    6 It rises at one end of the heavens
    and makes its circuit to the other;
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.

    Romans 10 NIV

    16 But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?” 17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. 18But I ask: Did they not hear? Of course they did:

    “Their voice has gone out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.”

    This is very strong evidence that the star did appear and was a very unusual event.

        The question is, where did this man got his information. I would question if he got it from Larson's CD. If so why does he not give Larson credit and offer Larson's CD.
