A Star…

‘Where is the newborn king? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him.’

Matthew 2:2

The wise men said they saw Jesus’ star. Balaam referred to a coming ‘star…from Jacob’ (Numbers 24:17). Some say this star may have been a conjunction of Jupiter, Saturn and Mars in 6 BC, and others have other explanations. But couldn’t God, who created the heavens, have created a special star to signal the arrival of his Son? Whatever the nature of the star, these wise men travelled thousands of miles searching for a king – and they found him!     study note: NLT STUDY BIBLE – Matt. 2:2
