One of the most unusual events, celebrated at Christmastime, is the account of the Christmas Star. This is mentioned in Matthew 2. But what was the event all about? It seemed to involve a star, and a group of Wise Men or Astrologers from the East. What an unusual mix? What can we make of it?
Paul Taylor discusses these issues in a special Christmas talk.
