|The Three Wise Men|
In the days when King Herod ruled, there were|
three wise men, also called *magi*. One night,
the wise men noticed a very bright star shining
in the east.
The star was a sign to them, that a king had|
been born; so the wise men set out on a journey
to follow the star and find the newborn king.
The star led the wise men through fields and|
over mountains, until they arrived in Bethlehem,
where it stood over the place where Jesus was.
When the wise men arrived, they found|
Mary, Joseph and the baby, Jesus; and the glory
of the Lord shone all around them.
The wise men knew that this baby truly was the
King of kings, and they rejoiced with
exceedingly great joy; and bowed down
before Jesus and offered to Him their
treasured gifts of gold, frankincense
And the angels in Heaven rejoiced, for they also|
knew that Jesus was the Son of God.
And the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called
The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace."
. . . Isaiah 9:6
