Larson combines the biblical text with historical evidence as well as evidence from astronomy to conclude that the star the magi saw was the convergence of the planets Jupiter and Venus with the star Regulus that happened in 2 B.C. It is obvious that although his findings are primarily scientific, he in no way intends to reduce or diminish the sovereignty and creativity of God in His orchestrating of these events that announced the birth of Messiah."

"Frederick A. Larson, a lawyer, became interested in the history of the star of Bethlehem, and did extensive examining of the facts. He relied on biblical texts, Jewish historians such as Josephus, and astronomers and constellation experts such as Johames Kepler and Copernicus. Using astronomy software, he went back in time to the period in which the Eastern Star would have been viewed in the sky, and he began piecing together his findings. This DVD makes use of fantastic graphics and illustrations and sound teaching. The viewer may be shocked to learn some of Larson's findings, which solidify and do not contradict biblical teachings. Larson illustrates how a star could be bright and stop over a specific location. ... He concludes with some reliable scientific facts about the history of the stars during the time of Christ's crucifixion." - The Dove Foundation
