The Magi

Passage: Matthew 2:1-12

The magi who visit Jesus just after his birth are some of the most mysterious characters in the Bible. They travel from far bearing gifts for the messiah but little else is known about them. In this sermon we explore how Matthew presents them in his gospel and contrasts them to the wicked king Herod. What you'll find is that the deeper you explore their role in the nativity story the more they have to offer us readers thousands of years later as we reflect upon the significance of the birth of Jesus.
