Was the Star of Bethlehem real?
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.
