The Star Of Bethlehem - The Documentary
Did the Star of Bethlehem Exist?
Wow! What a night. About a week and a half ago, my church announced that they were going to show a documentary that would allow me to see the same night sky that the 3 Kings saw. I thought that it was wonderful news, especially right now. The amazing stories of Jesus' birth that surround the holidays and all the tales told in Christmas carols made it the perfect time. I knew that I wanted to go see that. That was tonight. It was so amazing to watch that I couldn't help but write about it as soon as I got back. Now, I am not a scholar but I am a nerd (a proud one, always have been). I love a good documentary. I don't pretend to have a thesis about why I chose to believe in God. I don't say that I am of a certain religion or another. I live and love equally. This night for me was amazing and I am so thankful that Living Water Fellowship decided to share it with us. I was so impressed that I decided to get a copy for myself. I want to share it with some of my own loved ones.
The science in this documentary is amazing and unfamiliar to me. Science and math were not my fields. It was interesting for anyone, regardless of religious or non-religious belief. The fact that they are able to combine math from so long ago with today's technology in order to accurately show us the starry skies of thousands of years ago is astonishing. Thank God for analytical people. I have slight analytical ways, but nothing that can produce a video like this one. It, like many documentaries, is not for those seeking action filled drama. It is very interesting, for others like me who are curious about what science has to say about the bible. Does science discredit or support the bible? That will have to be for you to decide.
If you do decide to watch it, I would love to hear what you thought. Come back and comment. All I can say it that it was amazing. I will not take away from your experience.
