Astronomy and the Bible

Presented by Dr Jeff Tallon

Professor Emeritus of Physics

Join us for an enlightening journey through the cosmos as viewed through the lens of one of humanity’s most ancient texts: the Bible. This talk delves into the fascinating instances where the Bible mentions celestial events, from the Star of Bethlehem to the darkened sun at the crucifixion. Utilizing state-of-the-art astronomical software, we’ll recreate the skies as they would have appeared during these pivotal moments in biblical history. This unique approach not only brings these stories to life but also provides a deeper understanding of the cultural and historical context of the times. Discover how modern technology allows us to gaze into the past, illuminating both our scientific understanding and spiritual reflections within Scripture.
