     Where is He that is born King of the Jews?  for we have seen His star in the East, and are come to worship Him” [Matthew 2:1,2]

These three wise men from the East were philosophers and scholars, honored for their wisdom, kindness, and integrity.

     As these wise men studied to understand the stars of the heavens, they were impressed that a Creator must exist.  Wanting to know more, they studied the Hebrew Scriptures.  They knew of the Scriptures because Balaam, once a prophet of God, had been a magician or wise man in their land. 

     Inspired by the Holy Spirit, Balaam had foretold the success of Israel and the appearing of the Messiah.  His words had been handed down century after century.

When they read the Old Testament Scriptures, the wise men found more promises of the Messiah.  To their joy, they determined that His coming was near and that it would change the world with a new understanding of God.
