“Only one text in the Bible describes the visit of the wise men to the child Jesus. The information given here is not sufficiently detailed to unequivocally identify the wise men and the nature of the star that led them in their search for the Messiah. However, the recurring nova hypothesis is perhaps the most reasonable one for the star and eastern scholars familiar and submitted to the teaching of Daniel; the most reasonable for the wise men. Certainly, this interpretation is consistent with all the facts presented.”
