Where is the newborn king?

The Magi from east showed up in Jerusalem and shocked everyone. They were searching for a newborn King of Jews.

Jesus was born in Bethlehem and only few people knew about it. God is super intelligent, He sent eastern scientists and astrologers to Jerusalem to bring the greatest news to the King Herod and whole Jerusalem.

They were supernaturally guided by the extraterrestrial body (Star) and it led them up to Jerusalem and then the star became invisible. They were bit lost and inquired with everyone. The Herod immediately summoned Jewish scholars to locate the place of birth of Messiah.

They redirected Magi to Bethlehem. After their meeting with Herod, the star miraculously reappeared and led them to the house where Jesus and his family were residing.The Magi offered gifts worthy to be offered to the King.

Magi weren’t disappointed with the size of the King (Jesus was a tiny baby, they knew was the king), His poor parents and poverty-stricken circumstances. _ Bible blogger

They worshipped Him and went back to their own country. Today you and me are the guiding stars. We have the capacity to lead others to Christ Jesus the king. We can worship this King wholeheartedly.

Matthew 2:1-2 NASBS
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, [2] “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.”

God bless you dear readers.

    I think He was older. “And when they were come into the HOUSE, they saw the Young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him….” Matthew 2 and verse 11. Herod ordered the killing of all of the men children two years or younger. Matthew 2: V16 KJV Caps are mine. Ty f:))

    1. Oh great. Thanks for noticing. Yes I am aware of this doctrinal statement. I have it from Bible scholars. At the same time, it always amuses me that how could these wise men were convinced that He was King. There must have been something very special and unique look Jesus had so that they could comfortably offer worship and gifts. It is baffling to my understanding. Thanks for your valuable contribution to this discussion. I appreciate your valuable time to read and respond to this post. Abundant blessings to you dear friend.

        To you also. Remember Joseph was second in command to King of Eqypt? He also ruled the Magi. I think they handed down from generation to generation, perhaps even written tablets, with his teachings. As they read the stars They remembered those teachings of Our God’s promises. My opinion for what it is worth.:))
