In today’s (chronological) Bible reading… Matthew 2; Luke 2:39-52… we focus on those next events after Jesus’ birth.
The report of what happened when the wise men came to visit Jesus is often connected with the Nativity… to that stable in Bethlehem. But, Jesus was probably between 1-2yrs old when the wise men came to visit Him in “the house”.
The wise men had studied the skies and followed a star for many months. The signs they saw led them to believe something important… something monumental… was happening. They were right! And they wanted to be right in the middle of it!!
How long would continue to look for signs of where Jesus is?
How far would you be willing to travel to get to where Jesus is?
The wise men are those who did what these wise men did.
