Mystery of the Christmas Star

Mystery of the Christmas Star

Running time: 31 minutes

School Groups: All ages

Journey back 2000 years to Bethlehem as we seek to discover a scientific explanation for the Star the wise men followed to find the baby Jesus. We'll investigate possible dates for the birth of Christ and look at recorded sightings of significant astronomical events during this timeframe. We'll see which of these signs in the sky could have been remarkable enough to cause the wise men to travel across the desert from Babylon to Bethlehem just to see a newborn King. This modern retelling of the Christmas story is sure to charm and captivate audiences of all ages.
