Shared from The Isaiah 53:5 Project, a snippet, excellent piece.
When living down south, my mother couldn’t help wonder why all the nativity sets had wise men with firemen hats on them. When her curiosity finally got the best of her, she went to one of the homes and asked. They told her it was clearly stated in the good book that there came wise men from a far!
OK – bad joke, but seriously folks, today is Epiphany, the celebration of great revelation of God’s own Son to the Gentiles – in the persons of the wise men who came searching for this new king.
