Following the Star of Bethlehem

Church Blog, Events0

The Gospel of Matthew, chapter 2, tells us that wise men from the east followed a rising star that came to rest over the place where the Messiah was born. But was there really a moving star and if so, what was it? And what is the connection between this star and the death of Herod the Great? On January 8 at Faith-Penfield at 3:00 pm, Chris Lien-an avid astronomer and member of St. Mark Lutheran Church-will leverage science, software, and ancient historiographical writings to delve into the mystery of the Star of Bethlehem and provide a computer simulation of what may have been God’s astronomical announcement to the world that our savior had arrived.
