The Magi Find Jesus
After Jesus was born, some magi (some people call them wise men) were eager to find the promised King and give Him gifts to show their love…even if that meant traveling a long, long time.
Read part of their story in Matthew 2:1-2 and Matthew 2:9-11—and check out the road map below to see how far they traveled.
The Wise Men Visit Jesus
“Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea. This happened while Herod was king of Judea.
After Jesus’ birth, Wise Men from the east came to Jerusalem. They asked, “Where is the child who has been born to be king of the Jews? When we were in the east, we saw his star. Now we have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:1-2
“After the Wise Men had listened to the king, they went on their way. The star they had seen when they were in the east went ahead of them. It finally stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were filled with joy.
The Wise Men went to the house. There they saw the child with his mother Mary. They bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures. They gave him gold, incense and myrrh.”
Imagine you’re one of the magi. Grab some supplies and take a trek throughout the house – or at least across the room. While you’re traveling, click on the video below to listen to a song about their trip.
