John 1:29

Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

"I always thought that there were three wise men!" Maybe. Despite Hollywood, traditional Christmas carols and the ubiquitous nativity scene, we do not know for sure. What's more,

Matthew 2:10 & 11 says: "When they (the wise men), saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him."

Almost all the traditional nativity scenes show the wise men coming to the manger to worship the newborn Jesus, but the Bible strongly indicates otherwise. The only reference to the wise men is in Matthew, where they came to "the house" not a manger, and saw "the young child" not an infant (there are different words in Greek for infant and young child).

Also, Herod, after interrogating the wise men on when the star appeared, had all the male children in Bethlehem and surrounding areas, two years and under killed. This indicates that Jesus may have been close to two years old when the wise men visited them.

God Bless You!

Several ladies were discussing how children never write thank you notes anymore.

"Last Christmas all of my grandchildren came to thank me in person," interjected an elderly dame.

After her peers all commented on how extraordinary that was, she admitted that she had sent out generous, unsigned checks to every one of them.
