     In the tiny town, they found no royal guard defending a newborn King.  They found no priests, no scholars, no presidents.  Only a baby, cradled in a manger, and His simple peasant parents. 

     Could this really be the One of whom the Scriptures spoke?  Could this be the One who would raise the nation of Israel and be a light that would shine to the ends of the earth?

     “They came to the house where the child was and saw him with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshipped him” [Matthew 2:11]. 

     Beneath the appearance of a small helpless baby, they recognized the presence of God.  With remarkable faith, they knelt and gave their hearts to their Savior, then laid their gifts at His feet ~ gold, frankincense, and myrrh, a precious spice.

     With their journey complete, the wise men prepared to return to King Herod in Jerusalem and tell him what they had seen.  They did not know that he intended to harm the baby.  In a dream, they were told to avoid King Herod, so they took a different road home.
