The Star of Bethlehem

What was the star that brought the magi to Bethlehem? Ernest L. Martin makes a good case that it was the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter June 17th, 2 BC. Many important astronomical signs appeared from May 3 BC to December 2 BC. This fits well with the fact that Jesus was born on the Feast of Trumpets 2 BC. Ernest L. Martin says it was 3 BC, but this may be due to a zero year miscalculation. There is no zero year, only a zero point. His book is titled, “The Star That Astonished the World.”
