Mini Article part 3: Star Light, Star Bright

Reason for the Season PART 3: 

On December 21, the Jupiter and Saturn regular 20-year conjunction will occur to observers, this time appearing closer than usual. The closest observable conjunction before that was in medieval 1226! The miraculous “Star of Bethlehem” led wise men, but had nothing to do with a “regular conjunction,” because Matthew 2 says:

(1) it moved to guide wise men, not shepherds (vs. 1, 9);

(2) led for more than a year (vs. 7, 16);

(3) “came and stood over where the young child was,” a selected house, not a manger (vs. 9-11);

(4) never occurred again (v. 12)!

Also notice wise men came “after Jesus was born in Bethlehem” (Matthew 2:1), not the day of birth with the shepherds (Luke 2:8-16). Those Wise Men never saw the baby Jesus, and wise men today will respect what the Bible says about it! - December 14, 2020
