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.Read more ›
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!
