astronimical testimony of christ's birthThe scriptures tell us that heavens (stars, constellations, etc.) testify of Christ and communicate messages from God to earth.  (Psalm 19:1, Psalm 97:6, Psalm 50:6, D&C 5:12)  When Korihor demanded a sign to prove the existence of God, Alma testified that the universe provides an undeniable witness of the Creator.

 The scriptures are laid before thee, yea, and all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and call things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator. (Alma 30)
What astronomical events occurred surrounding the birth of Christ?  I would recommend watching the following documentary entitled The Star of Bethlehem to learn how the stars prophesied and announced the coming of the Messiah!



If you are interested in studying how astronomical events have announced important events throughout the history of the world (including the Restoration of the Church, the births of Old Testament prophets, Book of Mormon events and more!) consider reading some of Dr. John Pratt’s articles.
A complete listing of Dr. Pratt’s articles can be found here.
