I am happy to announce the release of a brand new four-part series entitled "Birth of Jesus and the Star of Bethlehem". As its title denotes, this series discusses events surround the Birth of Jesus Christ, including the shepherds in the field, the wise men -- or Magi -- evil King Herod's murderous plot, and theories regarding the possible nature of the Star of Bethlehem.
