Herald from Heaven
Frederick Larson, president of the Star Project in Bryan, Texas, says Matthew 2 gives nine clues to the nature of the star, such as birth, kingship and a connection with the Jewish nation.Using Starry Night, a computer program, Mr. Larson says he reproduced the skies of 2,000 years ago.He suggests on his Web site, http://asp.washtimes.com/www.bethlehemstar.net, that Jupiter hovered over Bethlehem - spinning backward to stay in place - on Dec. 25, 2 B.C. "Jesus wasn't born on that day, but I speculate that the wise men found him then," he says."I'm not against miracles, but this actual natural event satisfies all the evidence we have in Matthew.It would be far more miraculous because the universe was planned far from the beginning of time to work this way." Mr. Larson suggests the wise men were actually some of the best scientists of the day. "They may have had some superstitious beliefs, but they had a good understanding of the natural order," he says."The book of Matthew was not endorsing the principles of astrology.The Jews dictate star worship as having a penalty of death.Astrology assumes that stars cause earthly events, while the Bible assumes that they are messages."
