The people around the star:

          Joseph & Mary, Matthew 1:18-25 18 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came

            about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she

            was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the

            law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

            20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said,

            “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived

            in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name

            Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord

            had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call

            him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”). 24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the

            Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he did not consummate their

            marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
