Star of Bethlehem

QUESTION: Star of Bethlehem

ANSWER:

Although we donít know the actual location of Christís manger in Bethlehem, a traditional site at the Church of the Nativity has been marked since the 4th century by a silver star in an ornate setting -- the ďStar of Bethlehem.Ē

Under the marble slabs and ornamentation of the Star of Bethlehem, there are natural cave walls and a grotto that many scholars believe is the actual birthplace of Jesus Christ (Luke 2:7). The Star of Bethlehem has become the symbolic destination of pilgrimage for Christians since Constantine.

Evidence For Jesus - Go!

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
