The Star of Bethlehem

Birth of Christ

In Bethlehem,,old, where Mary gave birth,

our Jesus was born, the Savior of Earth.

sent there by God, Who reigns on High,

marked by a sign, a bright star in the sky.


The Magi followed the bright specter, so far,

on camels they traveled, by the light of the star.

to find the Lord Jesus,They searched ever long,

seeking worship of the king, of the prophesy, strong.


At last the three found, the child that they sought,

all bowed in His worship, gave gifts that they brought.

Lord Jesus, the baby, in straw where he lay,

among the stars, angels sang of Him on this day.


The holy one was sent from our God, up above,

His Son was a symbol. of the depths of His love.

The Christ who would save us from a world full of sin,

He would give up His life, so ours could begin.


Scientist and astronomers say, after research, that the star of Bethlehem was a natural event of a meteor. The great likelihood of such a coincidence, would be infinitesimal, at the same time the Christ was said to be born in Bethlehem, and be seen by so many in those days. The meteor, or star, was actually seen days before the birth and was a sign seen as the coming savior, as prophesied and acknowledged by even King Herod. He was on his throne at that time, and was a ruthless ruler. In the book of Matthew, In his fear of a new king of the Jews, who would eclipse his own reign, the then king, Herod, had the two year old and younger male children of the Jewish people, slaughtered to prevent this possible birth, and of of a new king, from happening.

The Wise men of the Bible were scholars who had studied about the coming Messiah and were themselves, Gentiles who had to travel a great distance to seek and find the Savior in Bethlehem. Our Creator made many promises, that He has kept and all of the miraculous events that have occurred in the scriptural accounts in the Bible, were so numerous in the volume of their occurrences, that it would defy reality and senses of the human brain, to conceive of the significance of these miracles and their number. The birth of our Savior, Jesus, was a miracle of God, that He sent to us, unconditionally to accept, and for each of us to accept or deny Him, on this earth. As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord.

      One thing you might find intriguing:

      http://www.bethlehemstarscape.com/Video_about_the_...

      The video uses a professional astronomy package to demonstrate how the Star of Bethlehem looked to the Magi and provides an explanation. The guy also sells a kit if you want to replicate the night sky at home.
