Was the Star of Bethlehem an Actual Astronomical Event? [VIDEO]

Written by Philip Hodges

The Star of Bethlehem has been the subject of much study and speculation for centuries. Have you ever wondered if the Star of Bethlehem was an actual astronomical event, or if it was something operating outside the natural realm?

Attorney-by-trade Frederick “Rick” Larson delved into this subject after his kids had wanted him to build a nativity scene over a decade ago. Not knowing exactly what to do with the star, he did a little research to find out what it was exactly.

Little did he know that his research would lead him to making a documentary on the subject a short time later.

Rick Larson makes a compelling case for what he believes was an actual astronomical event. He draws heavily on Scripture and on astronomy software called Starry Night.

I hope you enjoy it and find it as fascinating as I did:
