"...There shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel..." (Numbers 24:17)
The star of Bethlehem is one of those religious mysteries of the world, that has baffled scientists, astronomers, historians, and religious scholars for centuries. The astronomical approach of finding an actual star, that coincided with the birth of Jesus, has eluded many. There is absolutely nothing in the astronomical record to indicate that any special luminary body was seen in the heavens at the time of Jesus' birth. This has led some to believe that the star of Bethlehem is nothing more than Biblical myth, and that perhaps, Jesus is also a myth. In this blog, I am going to take you back to the possible mindset of the magi of the east, who discovered this Star, which record we have of in the Bible.
The narrative record of the star of Bethlehem is found only in the gospel of Matthew. The narrative begins with these words.
