Cases from the Files of a Bible Detective: Case of the Threatening Star – on site

December 7, 2022 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Cuneiform tablets with Mesopotamian sky omens nearly three thousand years old tell us how ancient astrologers interpreted heavenly signs for their kings. Two particular omens involving the planter Jupiter spelled violent death for the king unless steps were taken to make peace with “the enemy”, the West. “Someone will rise …” warned the omen. Were the Magi in Matthew’s Gospel ambassadors sent to secure peace with the West? The Bible Detective applies astronomy, showing that these two Jupiter omens actually occurred near the time of Jesus’ birth. The faith-affirming result of this investigation is amazing!

Wednesday, December 7, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Check-in will begin at 6:15 p.m.

$20/person. Registration ends on Friday, December 2.

Presenter: Dr. Fred Baltz is a Lutheran pastor from Galena, Illinois. For four decades, Fred has been a Bible Detective, investigating events in the Scriptures which some have simply dismissed as non-historical. This is your chance to review and learn some Bible texts yourself while hearing from the disciplines of the biblical languages, archaeology, history, geology, and even astronomy.
