The Wise Men were religious people who tend to sheep for a living. They studied Scripture and were more than familiar with Isaiah’s prophecy about the Messiah. So, when a bright rear star appears in the Eastern skies, joy filled their hearts. Because they knew that was a sign that our Saviour had been born.
The men gathered gifts and embarked on a journey that would end in a stable in Bethlehem in Judea. There they saw the child lying in a manger with his mother, Mary and father Joseph. They bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their gifts. They gave him gold, frankincense and myrrh. Merry Christmas!
