Did Three Kings Really Visit the Baby Jesus?
What about those wisemen?
After the Baby Jesus was born, angels of the heavenly host appeared to local shepherds, proclaiming the wonderful news. As anyone who has ever owned a nativity set knows, the shepherds came to the manger and worshiped the Christ Child. Then Luke writes that the shepherds returned to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen. Matthew writes that after that, Wise Men from the East came in search of the newborn Messiah. But did they find Him in a manger?
