GOD: new evidence


Follow that Star?

(Unwrapped: the Truth about Christmas #22)

What's in the series?      Previous: Three Kings?       Next: Wise men from the East

In Matthew's account of the wise men visiting Jesus, he says that their interest was sparked by a star which they took to be a sign of the birth of   a new king of the Jews.

This star could have been a conjunction, where two planets appear close together in the sky. There was a conjunction of the planets Saturn and Jupiter on May 27th, in 7 B.C.

Or it could have been a comet, or an exploding star. Chinese astronomers saw an exploding star in March and April of 5 BC. This fits in with a date for Jesus's birth shortly before king Herod died in 4 B.C.

Or could it have been a completely supernatural sign, like the angels who appeared to the shepherds?

We do not know what it was. But this is not a good reason to dismiss Matthew's account.

‘Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing, and delicately balanced to provide exactly the conditions required to support life. In the absence of an absurdly improbable accident, the observations of modern science seem to suggest an underlying, one might say, supernatural plan.’
- Nobel Prize-winning scientist Arno Penzias
