Synopsis by Nathan Southern
In the gospels, the Christian scriptures recount extraordinary events on a cosmic level at the time of Christ's birth - events that rivaled anything in written astronomical history. One event in particular involved the rise of the 'Star of Bethlehem,' a star heralding the arrival of the son of God. The hour-long documentary The Star of Bethlehem explores the historical data behind this miraculous event and the resonance of it through the centuries.
