In The Bible the star was first seen by the three wisemen.
The star of Bethlehem appeared at the time of the birth of Jesus Christ., and it was a very special star indeed. and the star which was so special is not going to appear now and again.
The three wise men who were living in the Orient at that time. They saw it months before the birth of the Lord. Then they decided to follow the star and they had to travel several months to arrive in Bethlehem. The shepperds did not see the star until the night the Lord was born so they saw it much later!
The star was seen in the eastern part of the sky, and will be the direction from which Christ will come for the last time.
There is one story of the nativity in Matthew's Gospel. Joseph and Mary lived in a house in Bethlehem, where the virgin Mary conceived and had a child. Magi came following a star from the east, to bring gifts and worship Jesus. King Herod, afraid for his throne, sought to kill the baby Jesus, so Mary, Joseph and Jesus fled to Egypt until after the death of Herod, when they began to return to Bethlehem, but turned aside and migrated to Galilee.There is another nativity story in Luke's Gospel. Joseph and Mary lived in Nazareth in Galilee, but had to travel to Bethlehem for the census of Quirinius. In Bethlehem, they could not find lodgings and had to sleep in a stable, where Mary bore a child. Shepherds were told by angels of the birth, and came to worship Jesus. A few days after the birth, the young family travelled to Jerusalem and then returned peacefully to Nazareth.The modern Christian understanding of the nativity is a syncretism of the two gospel accounts.
