The Star of Bethlehem Mystery, part 3

With Owen Gingerich

For more on the October Conference at the University of Groningen on Mike Molnars explanation for the Star of Bethlehem, we talked with Owen Gingerich, a professor of Astronomy and the History of Science at Harvard University. Professor Gingerich read professor Molnar’s paper at the conference, since Molnar couldn’t attend, and has been an early supporter of his approach. But he indicates that while the astronomers, historians, theologians and Bible scholars who attended the conference liked Molnar’s approach, they don’t necessarily agree with all of his conclusions.
