This is one of the coolest programs I’ve ever seen, and I wanted to share it with the Right Soup for Christmas. The Star of Bethlehem ~ put in the heavens at the creation of the universe ~ signified many things. Frederick A. Larson, an attorney and layman made ‘the star’ a personal quest… and his website Bethlehemstar.net is fantastic. His presentation here is a wonderful gift; I hope you enjoy!

“About 99.9% of the Star of Bethlehem stuff is nutty, but this isn’t that. It’s well-researched and reasonable.”
—Ronald A. Schorn, Ph.D.—
Schorn founded and served as Chief of the Planetary Astronomy department at NASA and was Technical Editor of Sky & Telescope magazine. He is the author of Planetary Astronomy.

For if the Star wasn’t magic or a special miracle from outside of the natural order, then it was something even more startling. It was a Clockwork Star. And that is overwhelming.

He marked it in the stars. And from before the beginning of time as we experience it, God knew the very moment when Messiah would breath his last on the cross.

Jesus is “the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.”
Revelation 13:8

Now, for a look from the moon back to the earth at the moment of Messiah’s death…
