The Wise Men

Traditionally, the wise men (Magi) have been treated as part of the Christmas story because Matthew records their visit immediately after he tells of the birth of Jesus. He notes, however, that their visit was "after Jesus was born in Bethlehem." In all likelihood, the visit of the Magi probably occurred around 2 years after Jesus' birth. This would explain why Herod ordered the massacre of boys who were two years old and under (Matt. 2:16). The wise men were learned men from the east who came looking for "the King of the Jews," in order to worship Him. The activities below are related to this famous story.
