*STAR OF WONDER *for Little Town of Bethlehem , Department 56 56.59906 released in 2000 "According to the Bible, this star of Bethlehem led the wise men to the child Jesus. Astronomers have theorized that this celestial body may have been the brilliant conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in the constellation Pisces, which occured three times in the year 7 B.C. Matthew gives us the impression that Jesus may have spent the first two years of his life in Bethlehem and most modern day scholars place His birth in 6 B.C possibly 7 B.C."
