We were given this puzzle in class and i have no idea, any help would be appreciated
Cronus (Saturn) and Jupiter merge, causing the Bethlehem star phenomenon. That said, Bethlehem is in Palestine. This is probably the answer.
1Unlikely - the Nazarene's birthday in December was set by clergy centuries after the verses that mention a star were written. This was done to associate Christianity with the much older pagan tradition of Saturnalia.– CodosaurMay 21, 2021 at 8:25
@Codosaur Nevertheless, we are talking about legend, not historicity.– SpencerMay 23, 2021 at 23:48
Italy, particularly Rome. Romans worshipped Saturn/Chronus. Saturnalia was the Roman feast that became the Christmas phenomenon. Hope OP returns with the answer!– tblueMay 26, 2021 at 21:27
