DVDs by Professor David Block:


The Christmas Star has puzzled multitudes, for centuries.

What exactly WAS the Christmas Star?

The Star led the Wise Men on a remarkable journey of discovery, from the East to Jerusalem, over a period of approximately two years.

Could it have been a comet?

A nova?

A supernova (exploding star)?

Or perhaps, a scenario involving some of the planets?

Professor Block uses his vast knowledge of outer space, planets, stars and galaxies to fuse his studies of astronomy with the description of the Christmas Star as described in the gospel according to Matthew. This DVD is one of a kind; filmed live in Johannesburg, South Africa.


Running time: approximately 1 hour.
Recommended audience: High school and older.
