Was the Star of Bethlehem Real?

Was the Star of Bethlehem real?

Gospel of Matthew 2:1-10

1 When Jesus therefore was born in Bethlehem of Juda, in the days of king Herod, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem. 2 Saying, Where is he that is born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to adore him.

Was there really a star that led some “wise men” to find Jesus?  Can modern science prove such a thing really happened?  Did it really happen on Dec. 25?

Well, it seems that the answer to all of those questions is: YES! REALLY!

If you’ve seen the movie, The Nativity Story, then you’ve seen the Wise Men looking at the stars and discussing a strange astronomical event.  Rick Larson has put together a wonderful website that deals IN DEPTH with this wonderful event annoucing the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

At the website – Star of Bethlehem – there is a step-by-step way to discover and understand what Larson has uncovered.  But, get ready to spend some time reading.  Larson has really done his homework. 

For a quick introduction – and short video – you can read an article about Larson’s work and DVD at CBN.com.

Of course, Larson’s work is not 100% guaranteed.  His work is a VERY PLAUSIBLE explanation of Biblical events using modern astronomical techniques.  No one is obligated to believe all of his discoveries; nor to accept his interpretation of Scripture.

But, I guarantee, if you take a look at his work, you’ll begin to doubt your doubt.
