Star of Bethlehem

In stead of reading a devotion today, may I recommend going to the web site “bethlehemstar.net” ¬†This is a very interesting site. ¬†Occasionally you can see him lecture on some of the TV stations. ¬†Discover and enjoy.

IT’S AN ASTRONOMICAL MYSTERY. A strange star is claimed to have appeared at the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. This site is an investigation of the story found in the BiblicalGospel of Matthew, a story often called the ‘Star of Bethlehem.’ It brings the words of Roman and Jewish historians alongside the visions of ancient prophets.
