Episode 23: The Return of the Star of Bethlehem and its Hidden Meaning

Merry Christmas from the Catholic Nerds!

This will shed a whole new, beautiful “light” on Christmas and the Star of Bethlehem! As the “Great Conjunction” fills our night skies, the Catholic Nerds discover amazing prophecies of the Star of Bethlehem in the Old Testament. The Star of Bethlehem is the prophesied return of the Shekinah, the Glory Cloud, that “overshadowed” the Ark of the Covenant. And the Virgin Mary is the New Ark who carries the New Manna in her womb. The Star of Bethlehem “overshadows” the Holy Family as they travel to Bethlehem, guides the shepherds and Wise Men to the Nativity, and even explains why Mary rides a donkey!

Here is Scott's article explaining all the typology and hidden mysteries of the Star of Bethlehem, and how it all points to the New Ark - check it out! 

Plus, here is more on Mary as the New Ark of the Covenant and all the references to the New Ark at the Visitation

Mary is not just the New Ark of Moses - she is also the NEW ARK OF NOAH. Check out how this connects to Adam's skull being the Skull of Golgotha and Mt. Calvary, too.
