What is it that at long distances, 1 to 3 miles, looks like a star and
can do everything described in “The star of Bethlehem story”? Does the
bible say we should see the very same star-like objects in the latter days?
And at the second coming? Stars, planets, comets, and asteroids appear to
move across the sky in a east to west direction, they do not move directly
south. And the wise men’s journey following the “star” was 6 miles south,
which would take 3 to 4 hours, look at a map.
Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea
in the days of Herod the king, (# MAT 2:5-6,7,16,13,19 # MIC 5:2)
behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
Saying,/(The wise men are now in Jerusalem, 6 miles north of
Bethlehem, where the kings palace is at.)
When they had heard the king, they departed; (from Jerusalem)
and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, (# MAT 2:1-2)
went before them, till it came and stood over
where the young child was. (south to Bethlehem)
When they saw the star,
they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child
with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him:/ (# EXO 33:10)
Some say that the star of Bethlehem, also called Bethleham, was an astronomical
event. That is an exploding sun, a comet, one or more of our neighboring planets,
or a meteorite.
Using two maps, one a world atlas the other a map of old palestine at
the time of Jesus, the distance from Jerusalem to Bethlehem is 6 miles.
Bethlehem is predominantly south of Jerusalem. If it takes 30 minutes to
walk a mile, they would have made the journey from Jerusalem after talking
to the king to Bethlehem in approximately 3 to 4 hours. The stars and other
astronomical objects move across the sky from the east to the west, the
stars do not travel from north to south. Furthermore the stars at 32 degrees
north latitude move at a rate of 885 miles per hour or 15 miles per minute
When you look up at a star, you can only approximately know within 10
miles where it is at. You cannot without instruments know what town it is
over, much less which building it is over. This star guided them south, at
walking speed, then it stopped. It was close enough to the ground for the
wise men to pick, on the first try, the exact house that they were being
directed to, the house where Jesus was at. (# MAT 2:11)
There also is a place in the KJV Bible that talks about the Beam of Light in connection
with the birth of Jesus.
