"Who do you think made what appeared to be a star guide the astrologers to Herod? It was not the true God, Jehovah, but his adversary, or enemy, Satan the Devil!”
The Watchtower, December 1, 2013.
Matthew 2 is the only place in Scripture which discusses the star which led the Magi to the house where Joseph, Mary, and Jesus were. It did NOT lead the Magi to Herod. That the Magi arrived in Jerusalem and inquired of Herod as to where Jesus was to be found doesn’t mean the star led them to Herod. In fact, after their arrival in Jerusalem and their meeting with Herod, the star apparently appeared again (2:9). So the Magi really didn’t have to stop in Jerusalem - they apparently stopped there assuming that the “King of the Jews” would be born there. So the Jehovah’s Witnesses have just resorted to another lie, which is nothing but what their whole religious system is based on.
By the way, Magi were apparently followers of Zoroaster, but did not necessarily have to be astrologers.
