     Following the star meant that the wise men had to travel at night.  Through the long dark hours they repeated the prophecies and sayings that they knew.  At every rest stop, they searched the Scriptures again and felt even more strongly that God was leading them.  The star was a visible sign to follow, but their hearts carried the message just as strongly. 
The long journey went quickly because of their hope and joy.

     Finally they arrived in the land of Israel.  As they walked down the Mount of Olives toward Jerusalem, the star stopped above the temple and slowly faded from view.  The wise men hurried on, certain that everyone they met would be talking about the Messiah’s birth.
