5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed November 21, 2007
By John W.
I just watched this, expecting to be unimpressed by a guy making up wild theories. What I saw blew me away! The depth of scholarship and attention to detail convinced me that Rick has arrived at the truth. As a "just the facts ma'am" kind of guy, I'm not easily impressed, but this is the best documentary I've seen in years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evidence for God October 18, 2007
A magnificent display of the evidence to support the claims made for the Star of Bethlehem. The presentation is an inquiry without presupposition that engages even the most hostile viewer in an entertaining and easily understandable way. The data and the methods of investigation employed are transparent to anyone wanting to repeat them for themselves - I have and find only more evidence for the claims he makes, the visuals and the music are a delight and the discovery will take your breath away. A great Christmas present for anybody open minded to sorting truth from myth and legend regardless of religious persuasion. The Bible always said the heavens declare the glory of God. If you don't see that, get this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A DVD we've shared with our friends September 14, 2007
By aggie89
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We bought this DVD as soon as it was available for sale through its original vendor. Twice I've seen Rick Larson give this presentation live and it brought tears to my eyes BOTH times. When the DVD came out I knew I wanted to buy it to share with others, and that's what I've done. Before I viewed it for the first time I was eager to see how it would compare to the live is wonderful! I've pre-ordered more copies to give as gifts.

This is an astonishing and compelling use of modern astronomical tools to confirm events surrounding Jesus' birth and crucifixion. In my view the lunar eclipse at the crucifixion -- something that might appear to be tacked onto the talk -- is almost more significant than the identification of the Bethlehem Star. Just for fun, here is my own accuracy score: I am 80% convinced that his explanation of the Bethlehem Star is accurate, but I am 99% convinced that his explanation of the lunar eclipse at Jesus' crucifixion is accurate. To put it another way, I may not be willing to go to the stake over whether his Bethlehem Star identification is factually true, but I would likely be willing to go to the stake over the factuality of the crucifixion eclipse. The evidence seems overwhelming that the crucifixion occurred on April 3, 33 AD.

Since this is a popular level talk, proper documentation is missing (although a good bit can be found on the author's bethlehem star website). I wish the DVD producers had added a page or two of supporting citations for the various assertions made in the DVD -- I say this as a scientist who is interested in such things. For one thing, the talk implies that the speaker had stumbled on the crucifixion eclipse on his own, but the information he gives was first (I believe) presented by Humphreys and Waddington (Oxford) in a paper published in Nature in 1983 -- see the Wikipedia article on the Crucifixion of Jesus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jaw-Dropping Information October 3, 2007
By RalphW
Gives historical, biblical and scientific information about what the star was. Very well researched yet entertaining and "watchable". This is amazing for many reasons, but I like it because right now, this information is not well known. Mr. Larson has put all of the pieces of the puzzle in-place. I've purchased more than 20 of the previous version and have given nearly all of them away. When I loan them out, I never seem to get them back because everyone wants to share the DVD with all their friends and relatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars History or Myth? The Star of Bethlehem Revealed March 5, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Practically everything in the nighttime sky has at one time or another been proposed as the Star of Bethlehem. I've seen a lot of documentaries on possible phenomena that could have been "The Star." This is the FIRST, which has me convinced!

My only (mild) criticism is that the polish of Frederick Larson's presentation could use some work. Some special effects might also add impact--although I admit that the simplicity of the format emphasizes the wow-factor of the information itself.

Mr. Larson has done fascinating research--Biblical and historical. Furthermore, he uses a commercially available (and scientifically accurate) program (Starry Night Pro) to run the solar system backwards through time to see the actual nighttime skies over the Middle East at the time of Jesus' birth. You can buy the program and verify this for yourself. I've had the program for years, but never did the awe-inspiring research, nor found the jaw-dropping conclusions he reached.

The celestial conjunctions he describes (and shows) are 100% accurate. The mathematics of how the solar system works do not lie. His logical arguments on their meanings, based on historical research and astronomical symbology, are almost as difficult to assail. The awesome implications of this material will have many shouting in excitement! Interestingly, he also presents some similarly veined information on the date of Jesus' crucifixation which will also "wow" all but the most jaded hearts!

Whether you are convinced by his conclusions or not, if you aren't stunned and awed by the material in this presentation, you haven't understood it!!!

In my opinion, this documentary has a place in the home of every serious Christian. Not to confirm your Faith, (although it may) but for its Scriptural journey and for the wonder and joy found in seeing the awesome majesty of the Creator's handiwork, written across the sky!
