What if you could find the sky signs that led them to Bethlehem?
What if you could know what was in the heavens over Jerusalem when Jesus Christ was crucified? Did the sky really darken?
What if you could explore the stars and maybe learn about what God is like?
Well you can.
Because today with astronomy software we can see the sky at different times and places including when Jesus, the Messiah, lived on earth.
So if you search long enough, in the right way, you might find the sky at the time when Christ was conceived. You might find the sky when He was born. And you might find what was in the sky over Bethlehem when the Magi rode forth into that village to find Him.
You might even find what was in the sky on the day of His crucifixion.
Well, somebody did that search.
His name is Frederick A. Larson. He's a law professor who set out to solve a mystery: Was there really a "Star of Bethlehem"? Did it really "stop," like the Bible says?
"Can a star stop? It can and it did, and I'm going to show you," Larson says.
And then he does.
After making discoveries, Rick Larson was welcomed to many places throughout the world, and was asked to tell the story he had found.
Out of that was born "The Star of Bethlehem" DVD.
In its beginning, Larson says, "I'm going to be your guide to one of the great mysteries: the Star of Bethlehem." He next takes you on a journey far beyond the moon--without leaving your home.
A great guide, Larson's well-organized, with a passion for the subject and a love for his listeners. He shows those in his audience what the software showed him. Larson has a knack for making interesting ideas understandable.
"The Star of Bethlehem" is for curious children of all ages.
Atheists and agnostics are welcome.
This DVD doesn't require prior knowledge of astronomy or the Bible. It can be watched again and again, picking up details .
This is not about astrology or the occult--deceitful snares to stay far away from.
This is about the signs God planned for the sky at creation for us to find now.
When searching for the subject "the Star of Bethlehem" on the Internet, Rick Larson's Web site is found at the top. His work sparkles above others.
As its back cover shows, "The Star of Bethlehem" was called "wide-ranging and insightful scholarship" by a former President of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, who also was Publisher and Editor of "Scientific American" magazine. It also has the Dove Foundation's highest rating.
Larson's web site has an area called "What People Are Saying," clicking the heading "About" will bring it up. There are many quotes there and on his home page. They include these and more:
"About 99.9% of the Star of Bethlehem stuff is nutty, but this isn't that. It's well-researched and reasonable" -- Ronald A. Schorn, Ph.D.
"A convincing case...a mystery solved" -- Former Director, NASA Dryden Flight Research Center
"Well-researched and reasonable" -- Former Chief of Planetary Astronomy, NASA, and Technical Editor, Sky & Telescope magazine
"Wide-ranging and insightful scholarship" -- a former President of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
"This explanation of the Star is compelling..." -- a NASA Chief Engineer for the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station.
Visually powerful, "The Star" has a dynamic score by award-winning composer Julie Larson. It is available as a soundtrack called "In the Fullness of Time" In the Fullness of Time.
The "Star of Bethlehem" has a brief but valuable bonus feature, "Revealing the Ram" that might shock you, only in a good way.
Optional Spanish subtitles. For English subtitles, use the TV's closed-captioning setting. Widescreen. About 65 minutes long. Unrated.
The Bible story being revealed here about the Magi and Star is found in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 2; it's the first book of the New Testament. Other Scripture references are given onscreen, though in small print.
"The Star of Bethlehem" is a rare gem, blending the beauty of science and Scripture into magic of the best kind.
"I think you're going to find this completely fascinating," Larson says in the beginning.
I agree: Come and see this film of joyful discovery.
"The Star of Bethlehem" is brilliant.
There is a student in the Catholic University of America (CUA) working on some studies with astrology/astronomy. It was mentioned to me by a professor at the School of Architecture of CUA. Would it be possible to send this book as a gift for this CUA student's research? I do not have the detailed info of this student. If you are not able to send this DVD as a free gift, I would gladly just pay for it.
Your time and research is invaluable especially for those who seek God.
Even greater was the final conclusion of the movie and the amazing orchestration of the entire planetary system. Also astounding is the story of a 1600 mathematician who came us with the mathematical equation that explains the rotational interplay between all of the stars and the ability to know exactly where each one will be on any date and hour moving both forward and backward. It was the same equation used for our sending a craft to mars 400 years later.
Your Christian friends will be especially touched by the terrific and documentation in ways that will certainly bolster their faith.
