An old theory, that the "Star of Bethlehem" was a confluence of planets, must contradict the KJV and other versions which say, "We have seen His Star."
This is another miracle in the nativity of our Lord. The exciting annunciation, the "No vavancy" in Bethlehem, the birth of our Savior in the stable, the spectacular scene on the plain to the shepherds- angels announcing the birth, praising God, the spreading of the event by the shepherds, Mary pondering in her heart, and then later;
Wise men, seeing a special star, proclaiming a King is born, following "His" star till it came and stood over where the young child was."(KJV) And "when they saw the star they rejoiced with exceeding great joy."(KJV) "And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped Him," (KJV)
"Ordinary stars and planets" stand over half of the earth, not pin-pointing one spot on earth. Therefore it must have been a miraculous, one-time star to be so clearly revealed to them by the Holy Spirit, to guide the wise men to the very spot where Jesus was, in the house.
And another great miracle- that this was God bringing the Good News to the Gentiles also.
Truly a string of miracles. You can check other web sites on this.
