Publisher's Synopsis

This surprising information comes directly from the New Testament (with the application of the science of astronomy). The research is backed up with extensive reference to Roman and Jewish historical records and gives the essential astronomical data that can make the New Testament account of the birth of Jesus to be very understandable and also majestic beyond compare.

There were planetary conjunctions that happened in the heavens in the period when Jesus was born (3 to 2 BC) about which modern astronomers have expressed awe and astonishment.


"Of all the theories currently clustering around the Christmas star, I believe Martin's may be the most plausible."     ~R. Schneider, Sen. Editor, Guideposts

"Prof. Martin has presented a reasoned argument which deserves to be considered seriously."     ~Prof. F.F. Bruce, Univ. of Manchester, England


"Jupiter was known astrologically as the Father of the Gods. The planet Jupiter symbolized this deity. And in early August 2 B.C.E. Jupiter had just left its vicinity near the Sun and conjoined with Venus. This could have been an indication of a coming birth. 'Jupiter often was associated with the birth of kings and therefore called the King planet.' And here was the King planet in conjunction with Venus. To the Chaldeans and the Magi, Venus was Ishtar, the Mother, the Goddess of Fertility. Thus Jupiter (the Father) was now in conjunction with Venus (the Mother). Could this have signified to astrologers that the birth of a new king was imminent?"
