The star

A star led wise men from the East to Jerusalem, and after meeting with King Herod, the star led them to the house where Jesus was,

“When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was” (Matthew 2:9).

It is interesting to hear how people try to explain this star, because they still think of it as something light years away, but I believe it was a point of light that resembled a star from the perspective of the ground, just a few hundred feet or less above the ground.

That way the wise men could follow it all the way from the East, probably Persia, and see it standing over the exact house where Jesus was at that moment.
