SWO APPROVED: The Star of Bethlehem

When I walked around camp the other day, one of the most consistent answers to “what are your favorite Christmas Resources,” was the Star of Bethlehem Documentary. Several staff members went on and on about how interesting they found this piece of research.

This documentary looks at the famous “Star of Bethlehem” and points to intricate research to show its existence and its importance


“A strange star is claimed to have appeared at the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. This site is an investigation of the story found in the Biblical Gospel of Matthew, a story often called the ‘Star of Bethlehem.’ It brings the words of Roman and Jewish historians alongside the visions of ancient prophets. It mixes “modern” mathematicians with murderous turmoil in the Roman imperial court. It combines all these with astronomical facts which no one disputes. And it concludes that the star was a real event.”
