M-6B-NA Christmas Ornament Nativity of Christ Star of Bethlehem Faberge Style Framed Icon Pendant
In Christian tradition, the Star of Bethlehem, also called the Christmas Star, revealed the birth of Jesus to the magi, or “wise men”, and later led them to Bethlehem. The star appears in the nativity story of the Gospel of Matthew, where magi “from the east” are inspired by the star to travel to Jerusalem.
The star leads them to Jesus’ house in Bethlehem, where they pay him homage, worship him, and give him gifts. The wise men then return to their “own country.
Many Christians see the star as a miraculous sign to mark the birth of the Christ (or messiah).
