Default Re: The Star of Bethlehem

COIN ISSUED IN JUDEA IN A.D. 6 TO COMMEMORATE THE ASTROLOGICAL ASPECT THAT WAS GREATLY SPREAD ABROAD AMONG THE HERODIAN NOBILITY AFTER THE VISIT OF THE MAGI (ALTHOUGH HEROD HIMSELF WAS TRYING TO TAKE CREDIT FOR THE ASPECT REFERING TO HIMSELF AND HIS HEIRS -- HENCE CAME THE HERODIAN SECT OF THE JEWS WHO BELIEVED THAT THE MESSIAH WOULD BE THE SON OF HEROD. AND THEY DID NOT THINK THEY WOULD FAIL IN THEIR PLAN, BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT ALL THE MALES IN BETHLEHEM HAD BEEN SLAIN IN 6 B.C. BUT THERE WAS ONE MALE CHILD THEY FORGOT ABOUT.)
