Did You Know?

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11 (NKJ). We are all familiar with the nativity scene showing the holy family and the “Three Wise men” or “Three Kings”. As a twelve year old boy I could have written up the story with a great deal of confidence but with further study and reading how much do I really know about the Magi? Where did they come from? What was the star they followed?

The Gospel of Matthew is the only gospel to tell of the Magi or telling of the Wise Men from the East coming to Jerusalem saying’ “Saying where is he that is born King of the Jews. For we have seen his star in the east and are come to worship him”. King Herod had heard the same thing and he was troubled so he called his priests and scribes to demand they find out about this happening. The Wise Men that had traveled across the desert (not from the Orient) appeared before Herod. He demanded the same of them with the thought that he too wanted to worship the newborn.
