AS WE TURN TO CONSIDER THE GREATNESS OF THIS EVENT, we realize that it is a good thing for Christians to recognize the birth of The Christ as the greatest individual event that happened in the course of the history of this earth. Without a doubt nothing was more important to our race since we were placed in the earth, than the return by the coming of The Christ, to our relationship with God. The most significant things concerning these events that we celebrate in our Christmas observance is the realization that almost 1/4 of a million years is involved in these developments. What would we mean by that since our race has only been on the earth for not quite 7400 years? Since the days from the coming out of the garden by Adam to Christ was 5400 years, and it has not been quite 2000 years since then thus making almost 7400 years then it must be because certain events were involved.

How would they know which star to look for? In the east are thousands upon thousands of stars, a multiple of 10 times 126 trillion stars fill the sky from east to west and then north to south any single 24-hour day. How then would the Wise men have known that a king was to be born in Judea, and then say: “We have seen his star?”
