4.0 out of 5 stars The Star of Bethlehem,
This review is from: Star of Bethlehem [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)For anyone who wants a mathematical validation to the reality of the star seen at the time of christ's birth, this is ideal. It explains why it is only now in this last few years, that its understanding has become possible. It will leave you awe-struck by its scholarship and integrity.
Sadly, this is in a format of Region 1, and is not readily playable on many domestic DVD players in Europe.Region 1 is for use in America, but some machines in Europe can play it. Check first before buying; but it's worth doing what you can to view it. The story that we have waited 2000 years to hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply brilliant!!,
This review is from: Star of Bethlehem [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)Simply brilliant!
Whether you have a faith in a Creator God, or you put your faith in scientific proof....this film is simply Brilliant!
From the scientific point of view, it uses proven science to reel back time to the critical turning point in Israelite history...and corroborates the Gospels that tell the story of Yeshua ben Yoseph from Nazareth...his birth time and the time of His crucifixion.
From a faith point of view, if you ever wondered about the real birth date, and the signs in the sky that were reported by the Gospel writers, or the signs in the sky of the time of the crucifixion of Yeshua, then hold on and be amazed at how marvelous the Creator truly is.
There are wonderful, moving surprises in store for all who lay aside preconception and prejudice to view this with an open heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Documentary - Looking forward to the film,
This review is from: Star of Bethlehem [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)The facts about the star of Bethlehem are both verifiable and astonishing. So many wild and unverifiable claims are made through the internet these days that it would be easy to see this as just another one. But the fact that you can download any secular astronomical software (e.g. Starry Night) to check out the facts makes this evidence one that would stand up in any court.
This documentary presents the facts in a compelling way but surely there is a film waiting to be made about this. The grandeur of the themes, the centuries that they span and their impact on the human race are all the elements required for an epic. I'd recommend anyone to buy it and to check out the website [...].
5.0 out of 5 stars riveting,
This review is from: Star of Bethlehem [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)It reinforces ones faith. too many sacred things have been "debunked" in recent years. This gives evidence for the mastermind of Gods planning behind the universe and mans journey.
4.0 out of 5 stars A very helpful focus,
This review is from: Star of Bethlehem [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)Sometimes, it seems as if we may be tempted to treat the incidental details within the Gospel narratives as just a bit of window-dressing to lend significance to the message. I suspect that the elements in the 'Christmas Story' may be a bit like that. This film is a useful reminder that the incidentals do actually provide us with a great deal of explanatory detail which may be used for verification purposes. In fact, such was the care applied to the treatment of Matthew's text (chapter 2), I was shocked to discover just how much verifiable data was actually there.
The makers of this film open up the subject in a wholly convincing way. My only reservations are the slightly unctuous tone used at times (but that's perfectly understandable, given the real significance of the discoveries) and the rapidity with which Rick Larson fixes on the Planet Jupiter as the solution to the conundrum. That doesn't stop him being right, however, and the presentation puts forth an extremely robust case for the dating of Christ's birth, as well as the identification of the astronomical configuration which applied at the time.
A very good piece of work, and a helpful reminder for Christians that the detail we are given is there for a reason.
Overall, the film is beautifully-produced, and I would recommend it anyone with an enquiring mind, prepared to have their assumptions about the 'Christmas Story' radically shaken.
5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning and compelling!!,
This review is from: Star of Bethlehem [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)A layman (who is no slouch!) does the research and shares his documented conclusions about the nature of "the star of Bethlehem". Cinematically (is that a word?) GLORIOUS, musically, visually GLORIOUS... It provides facts that are compelling as it deals with not only the birth but also the death of the Babe laid in a manger. Weaves old and new testaments together as the Feasts of Israel are fulfilled in stunning declarations in heaven and on earth.
I watch it over and over and am gripped each time by new insights gained. DON'T MISS the 'Bonus Feature': "Revealing the Ram".
Scientifically astute minds will have plenty to chew on.
5.0 out of 5 stars Star of Bethlehem,
This review is from: Star of Bethlehem [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)This is by far the best film ever which explains the phenomena of the Star of Bethlehem. The film is of a small group gathered to hear Rick explain his findings after several years of research into this extraordinary event. Using software similar to that which NASA uses Rick has traced the movement of the starts and planets through the skies and through time. He shows, on screen, very clearly the movements of these heavenly bodies and how they would have been seen at the time of Jesus birth. He also shows how it could be that the "Star" seemed to stop and stand still. There is more, much more but let me not spoil it. Buy the film and be amazed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Star of Bethlehem DVD,
This review is from: Star of Bethlehem [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)A fascinating insight into the heavenly realms and what they foretold of the comming Messiah and the death of Jesus. The scriptures state that the heavens will declare the glory of our great God, this DVD brings this scriptures true meaning to be seen and understood. A very well produced film, based on fact, using the astrological Callander. Rick Larson testifies how the intererst in this star led him on a journey of discovery which enhanced his knowledge of the creator God.
5.0 out of 5 stars Makes the Bible come alive!,
This review is from: Star of Bethlehem [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)This DVD gives wonderful insight into the Star of Bethlehem, enhancing the Biblical account and making the Christmas story come alive. You don't need to be into astronomy or mathematics to enjoy this. It would be especially useful for a Bible study group as The Star of Bethlehem is carefully explained as part of the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy in relation to the birth of Jesus. It will make the whole meaning of Christmas come alive for you. Highly recommended.
