The three Magi, who will be the focal point of Dr. Carolyn Sumner‘s presentation Wednesday, January 6, 2010 at our Star of Wonderment Eve celebration, are most prominently mentioned in the Bible passage below from Matthew:
“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him. When King Herod heard this he was disturbed…Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared…they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.” -Matthew 2:1-12
On this twelfth night of Christmas January 6 we will have the opportunity to find out what was actually going on in the night sky as the three magi made their way to the baby Jesus.
