Based upon Christian tradition, Jesus was born in a manager in a cave near Bethlehem. Since the second century AD, Christians consider this cave or grotto the birthplace of Jesus Christ. Today, The Church of the Nativity, remains one of the oldest and most beloved religious destinations of Christian pilgrims. Below the marble Crusader columns of the Church of the Nativity, two steep flights of stairs lead to the Altar of the Nativity. The floor beneath the altar is encased in white marble. Here, encased in the marble, is a fourteen point silver star, the Star of Bethlehem, marks the spot of the birth of Jesus. A Latin inscription: HICDE VIRGINE MARIA JESUS CRISTUS NATUS EST. 1717. (Here Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary) This 5"x7" presentation is a replica of the Star of Bethelehem marking the birthplace of Jesus. This is not original.
