Advent 2011: Magi

Magi2011.12.04 - Kevin Makins - Advent 2011


Matthew 2

The way you view the birth of Jesus depends a lot on where you’re standing.

For Advent this year we are going to look at the Christmas narrative from multiple perspectives, and ask the question: “how did each group view the incarnation?”

This week we move on to the Magi, who are in the east when they see a star and come to inquire about where the King of the Jews would be born. 

The man they inquire with? Herod… the current King of the Jews.

Understandably, Herod finds this troubling.
