Move over Miracle on 34th Street and the Nativity movie, “The Star of Bethlehem” outshines you this Christmas”. I just discovered a Christmas documentary shedding light on the Bethlehem star that I recommend should take prime time first billing for family movie viewing this Christmas. I was so moved, inspired and blessed to watch this, I have no choice but to share my new found enthusiasm over this film and its content with everyone I know.
Unraveling a celestial puzzle that includes confirming the math of Kepler, correctly determining the date of Herod’s death, the science of astronomy and 9 points of biblical criteria from the book of Matthew this film presents a tremendous continuity backed by copious research. I was so glad I took my 13 and 10-year-old sons to see this film. Now they can understand the story of Christmas not only on a more mature spiritual level, but with a clearly explained scientific approach as well.
For millennia, believers, scoffers and the curious have wondered at the Biblical account of the Star. Many theories and hypothesis from history have emerged as to what the star really could have been. The Bible recounts unusual, or even impossible astronomical events at Christ’s birth, but could these prophecies and statement be proven even today?
For many doubters, the account of the Star is easily dismissed as myth or even as fictional as Santa. For many believers, it’s a mystery accepted on faith, but now biblical text and science merge for a fascinating tale tandem in truth, complimentary in content. What will happen to you if you combine current historical scholarship, astronomical fact and an open mind?
It was interesting how the film ties in scripture in the book of Acts that referred to a prophecy in the book of Joel. Seemingly hidden in the text was astronomy clues, that once explained seem as obvious and butter on bread. The content reveals a sort of galactic poem telling the story of Christmas and Easter. It is truly a tremendous and fascinating revelation.
I cannot urge you enough to watch this film. You can find it available by a simple Google search for star of Bethlehem movie. As an author and speaker in the past when I have found a book I really recommend, I push it during my public speaking opportunities with the “Dave Guarantee.” Meaning if you buy this and it doesn’t bless your socks off I will buy it off you. Also I have offered to mow yards in case I had to redeem the guarantee. To date from my recommendations I have yet to mow a yard with the condition a person has to fully explain why they were not blessed by my recommendation. So with that in mind I offer the “Dave Guarantee” to anyone in Iowa who buys this DVD and can look me in the eye and convince me its wasn’t a wonderful documentary. All this to say this is my way of urging you to watch this! I don’t care where you get it. Just get it. Just watch it.
During this holiday season I also challenge you to post either a link to this article or a link the official website BethlehemStar.net at your facebook page. I also recommend the official site as it is a great resource including comprehensive notes from the film.
“For if the Star wasn’t magic or a special miracle from outside of the natural order, then it was something even more startling. It was a Clockwork Star. And that is overwhelming. The movement of the heavenly bodies is regular, like a great clock. The Clockwork Star finally means that from the very instant at which God flung the universe into existence, he also knew the moment he would enter human history in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. He marked it in the stars. And from before the beginning of time as we experience it, God knew the very moment when Messiah would breath his last on the cross. Jesus is “the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.” Revelation 13:8″
I hope you take my word for it that ‘The Star of Bethlehem” is worth watching. If not take these recommendations…
“There are no words to express my feeling for this except, all my life I have prayed, “I believe, – help my unbelief…” and my God, through your wonderful “The Star of Bethlemen” has answered that prayer. Thank you for waking up my heart and soul and can you believe just at this time of year? What a blessed gift I will be forwarding this message to many friends and relatives. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
(E. Nettleton, Christoval, Texas).
“Blessed are you, for this was not revealed to you by man, (or by your own efforts), but by our Father in heaven. A message sent from God through you to our generation. I am blessed beyond words and completely in awe of our God. Thank you for your faithful pursuit of God’s glory. This has taken me to new and exhilarating depths in my walk with Christ. Our Christmas star will never be the same in the Frazier household. Praise be to Almighty God!”
“Absolutely awesome! Your presentation on The Star is clear, concise and biblical. Your research further expounds on the fact of God’s sovereignty. To Him be the Glory!”
“I just saw the presentation tonight and it was absolutely unbelievable. Just to see the power and amazing work of God literally unfolding before my eyes. I immediately went home and bought the DVD and can’t wait to show my doubting brothers and grand father. Thank you so much for giving me one of the most useful tools I will ever need in my life.”
(Geoff M.,Mansfield, TX)
“After several years of praying for and waiting for the completion of your beautiful production of The Star, I viewed with my heart in my throat – the magnificent story of Christ at Christmas. Still it makes my heart swell every time I hear the introduction of the beautiful music and seeing the clips on this link. I am going now – this season of Advent – to bring out my own personal copy of The Star and delight in the Heavens that declare the GLORY OF GOD and the sky above that proclaims HIS handiwork. Thank you, for this amazing gift to the HIS world. This is a blessing to GOD’s people.”
(T. Fenwick, Half Moon Bay, CA)
“Your video was jaw-dropping! My wife and I were fascinated. I know you will convince many unbelieving skeptics with your discoveries. Congratulations.”
“Absolutely fascinating!!! God rewards those who seek – and He has rewarded you with magnificent insight, and I thank you for making your research available on DVD. I will recommend it highly to other ministers.”
(Rev. Jim Bogle, Clayton, NC)
“You won’t believe the BEAUTY of this story. Thank you so much Rick – you gave us a pot of gold. I think this might be one of the most beautiful and interesting stories I’ve told in my years here on the religion beat.”
(Maria Arita – CBS News Anchor)
“This is a ‘Grade A top notch’ production exploring a fascinating topic. Mr. Larson will blow your mind with this DVD. You’ll be VERY happy you bought it, watched it, and shared it. We are going to give them away as Christmas gifts this year.”
(Awestruck in Indiana)
This DVD is an amazing combination of science, history and the Bible. It is a faith-affirming experience for believers and will cause skeptics to stop and think. I have seen it live and on DVD several times and each time I am blown away. Everyone should see this!
(G. Bush, Colorado Springs)
“A Jaw-Dropper! Gives historical, biblical and scientific information about the Star of Bethlehem. Meticulously well researched and entertaining. This is amazing for many reasons but I like it because this information is not readily available. Mr. Larson has put all of the pieces of the puzzle in place. I’ve purchased more than 20 and have given nearly all of them away. When I loan them out, I never seem to get them back because everyone wants to share the DVD with all their friends and relatives.”
(Ralph W., Seattle, WA)
“This is a first class portrayal of the story of the Star of Bethlehem. My son saw it and thought it was terrific. I have ordered several more copies so that I can share them with friends. My son Peter found it to be one of the best things he has ever seen. He is ordering several copies for friends.”
