John and Doves,
Brother Paul, there were, in fact, three planetary/star
conjunctions in Leo in a two-year period.
view it and re-view it.
Paul Wilson (25 March
"Star of Bethlehem
Many point to different conjunctions of stars to
being the star of Bethlehem but we know from the text they had been following
the star for about 2 years so did ANY of these conjunctions last at least 2
years in length??? Given how long it was in the sky it seems reasonable that
the star was specially created for the purpose of announcing the arrival of
the messiah and leading the wise men to him.
