II. Consider the Scriptures (Matthew 2:2)
   – Genesis 49:10; Numbers 24:17; Isaiah 60:1-3

III. Consider the miracle
   A. The timing of the star was miraculous (Matthew 2:7, 16)
   B. The movement of the star was miraculous (Matthew 2:9)
   C. Common explanations for the star:
      1) Comet
      2) Conjunction of planets
      3) Supernova
      4) Manifestation of God’s glory

IV. Consider the purpose (Matthew 2:3-6, 10; 28:19)
