1: Stargazing - how it all started.
Stargazing is the oldest science but it was soon being used to make predictions.
2: Stars in the Old Testament.
Judaism condemned astrologers who used stars for predictions. It wasn't all bad news for stargazers though.
3: The Morning Star.
The concept of a special person being in some way represented or associated with the Morning Star is a theme found throughout the Bible.
4: A moving star?
Legend has it that the star guided the Wise Men to Bethlehem. The Bible makes no mention of this, but the star was able to show the Wise Men where the child was.
