On December 21, 2020 there will be an event of the century, an unusual planetary constellation in the sky, which last existed in 1623 – The Jupiter-Saturn conjunction – The Star of Bethlehem – By Roland Noé

Wien (kath.net/rn)

On December 21, 2020 there will be a planetary constellation that will only appear again in a few hundred years: The Christmas star at Bethlehem will be visible. Werner Gruber, the well-known Austrian physicist and head of two observatories, drew attention to this yesterday during a discussion at “oe24”. The event of the century is about to begin in the late evening hours, there will be a so-called Jupiter-Saturn conjunction. This means that the two planets are approaching each other in the sky, are only 0.1 degrees apart and thus seem to merge into “one bright star”.

The special thing about it is that the two planets last came as close to each other in 1623 as they did in 2020. At that time, however, the event was too close to the sun and therefore hardly visible. Gruber also referred to the astronomer Johannes Kepler, who already had the assumption in the 17th century that the poinsettia of Bethlehem could have been just such a planetary constellation. In December 1603 from Prague, Kepler observed a conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn. The astronomer did the math back then and came to the thesis that such a constellation had also existed in the year 7 BC. What could still speak for this thesis: Jupiter was then considered the king planet. Saturn is also said to be the planet of the people of Israel, just as the constellation “Fish” at that time is a symbol for the Holy Land. The three wise men from the Orient could therefore only have drawn one conclusion at that time: a new king was born.

When Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea at the time of King Herod, magicians from the east came to Jerusalem and asked: Where is the newborn King of the Jews? We have seen his star rise and have come to pay homage to him.” (Mt 2,1-2)

A hint: on the evening of December 21st at exactly 7:21 p.m. CET, the closest approach between Jupiter and Saturn should be. Sunset will be at 4:04 p.m. on this day, it should be really dark at the latest 1 hour later. Even at this moment you should see this approach, if the weather cooperates! You can already see the approach of the two planets now and in the days before.

If you want to pursue that. But Herod stands for the Jews

who do not accept the faith. They seek the child after life from the beginning. They were not happy about the child, like the heathen who largely accepted him in their faith, but were frightened from the beginning about his arrival. Certainly not all, because salvation comes from the Jews. A wonderful people, where the Lord comes from and the apostles who came from the Jews but in contrast to the Gentiles only a few of the Jews came to salvation so far. They also joyfully accepted the Lord in faith. Therefore there is no excuse for unbelief, because all the scriptures that the Jews possessed testified about the Lord and although the Gentiles did not have these scriptures they found faith that makes blissful and works in love. The camel in the parable with the eye of a needle is probably also a sign for the heathen, who achieved this narrow path to the kingdom of heaven by grace through acceptance of faith. But few Jews made it through this narrow path of faith.

It seems to me that the star is not a natural one

Act natural phenomenon. He goes up and goes before the kings, leads them to Jerusalem. But Herod cannot see him in Jerusalem. Only when the magicians set off again does he appear again and pull ahead of them to his destination, where he stops. Certainly no natural star phenomenon or a comet can be. I think it’s a miracle of God. The 3 wise men believe in a miracle of God and follow this light and find the Lord Jesus Christ, who is God in man. Probably an image for the Gentiles who should find the Lord by faith. But a majority of the Jews, even though they had the Holy Scriptures, did not find this star. On the contrary, they even persecuted the Lord. So the interpretation could also have arisen that the 3 kings stand for the pagan world which became blessed through faith in the promises and miracles. These pagans were joyful believers and worshiped the Lord as King.

This is shown very well in the two books! If the moon wasn’t shining, then Bethlehem was exactly in the cone of light (you probably know that from the headlights of the car) of the two planets that looked like a double star during this time.

“The natural light = zodiacal light of the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn had the place Bethlehem 3 times in the light cone between the year 7/6 BC.”

What do you mean by that, I don’t understand?

Looking back, it can be calculated that this planetary conjunction existed around the time of Jesus’ birth. And it was also known in the 1st century that there had been migrations of scholars from the east to the Jewish land. The evangelists used this knowledge to emphasize the importance of the one who was born there.

extra information

The natural light = zodiacal light of the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn took place between the year 7/6 BC. 3x the place Bethlehem in the light cone. Our time calculation is definitely wrong, the monk Dionysius exiguus in the 6th century offset. Because Herod d. Große, the child murderer of Bethlehem, died in the year 749 of the Roman era = 4th BC. If the murdered boys are up to 2 years old, we automatically come to the number 7-6 BC.
Non-fiction books: 1) Konradin Ferrari d’Occhieppo: The star of the wise; Heroldverlag 1977.
2) Konradin Ferrari d’Occhieppo: The Star of Bethlehem; Brunnen-Verlag 2003; ISBN 3-7655-9803-8.
I also showed and quoted the books in religious education at high school, with great success.
