Who were those three wise men that travelled to see baby Jesus REALLY??



The story of the three wise men, also known as the Magi or the three kings, has been a fascinating part of the Christmas narrative for centuries. These enigmatic figures appear briefly in the Bible, but their mission and true significance have been the subject of much speculation and discussion. In this lesson, we will explore who the three wise men were, examine what their mission was according to biblical accounts, and discuss possible interpretations of their purpose.

The Gospel of Matthew is the only canonical book in the New Testament that introduces the three wise men, with no mention in Luke’s telling of Jesus’ birth. According to Matthew 2:1-12, wise men from the East travelled to Jerusalem in search of a newborn king, following a bright star that guided them on their journey. They visited King Herod and asked for information about the King of Jews‘ whereabouts. Herod consulted with religious scholars who revealed that Bethlehem was prophesied as the Messiah’s birthplace. Eventually, the wise men arrived at Jesus’ residence, offering him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh before returning home.

The identity of these mysterious travellers remains uncertain. Historians believe they were likely astronomers or astrologers from Persia or southern Babylonia due to their knowledge about celestial events and their eastern origins. The popular tradition has expanded this image to depict them as kings from various regions and diverse ethnic backgrounds.

The mission of these wise men seems to be finding and honouring Jesus Christ with their gifts. However, interpretations may vary:

1. Acknowledgment and reverence: By presenting valuable gifts and making a long journey to seek Jesus out solely based on a celestial event, they acknowledged and revered him as a divine ruler.

2. Fulfillment of prophecy: Their presence in Bethlehem was consistent with Old Testament prophecies about the coming of the Messiah, allowing them to represent gentile nations who would come to worship him.

3. Foreshadowing of Jesus’ Ministry: The gifts given by the wise men are known to bear symbolic importance. Gold symbolizes kingship, indicating Jesus’ status as the King of Kings. Frankincense, a resin used in worship, suggests his divine nature and the role he would play in serving as an intermediary between humanity and God. Myrrh, on the other hand, was used in embalming processes, which could be seen as foreshadowing his death and resurrection.

The continued celebration of this narrative highlights humanity’s fascination with the divine and serves as a reminder of Christ’s universal reach beyond borders and cultures.
