"The Date of the Christmas Star"

2 years ago Friday, December 14, 2012 10:37:56 AM CST December 14, 2012 Friday, December 14 2012 Dec 14, 2012 in Pat Shingleton Column

Astrophysicist Grant Matthews believes that April 17, 6 B.C., is the best date for the appearance of the Christmas star. The wise men were Zoroastrian astrologers who would have calculated the planetary alignment in Aries as a sign that a powerful leader was born. It could have also meant that the leader was destined to die at an appointed time and their gift of myrrh was used for the preservation of a body. Matthews notes that one born under the sign of Saturn denoted a powerful leader within the alignment of the sun, Jupiter, the moon and Saturn. Even though the heavenly sign at the birth of Jesus Christ was an unusual alignment, it is impossible to ascertain what caused the light. Fastcast: All is Calm, All is Bright.
