The stars were bright out here so far from a big city, and there were so many of them! Mom brought out a book about the constellations along with a flashlight and the flowers she was working on for Beth’s and Ruthie’s wedding. Laying the flowers aside for the moment, she pointed out Orion, the hunter, and Leo, the lion. Anna scrunched her nose. “That’s supposed to be a lion?”
“You know,” said Dad, “in ancient times people would tell the story of God by the stars.”
“How would they do that?” Anna asked.
“I don’t remember all the details, but it starts with the constellation of Virgo the virgin, who gave birth to a special son who had two natures like Gemini, and in the end we see he is the lion of the tribe of Judah. The Hebrew names of the stars give it much more meaning, but each constellation tells us something about Jesus, Yeshua Hamashiach.”
“Wow, that’s cool,” I said. “The whole story is right there in the stars.”
