      Who Were The Wise Men? by John A. Tvedtnes. Among the more intriguing figures in the scriptures are the wise men who visited the infant Jesus. The story of their journey to Bethlehem is found in the Gospel of Matthew, where we learn that they came “from the east” (Matthew ) when Jesus was apparently two years old (Matthew , 7, 16). Matthew 2 New King James Version (NKJV) Wise Men from the East. 2 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, [] wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”. 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all.

    Titled Mystery of the Magi: The Quest to Identify the Three Wise Men (Regnery, ), the book uses archeological evidence, modern technology, ancient texts, and a startling new discovery by a. The answer is, the wise men did come from the East and follow a star they saw in the east, just like Matthew’s text says. To understand how this is possible, first you need to understand that the language of the original text of the New Testament was Koine Greek (the “lingua franca” of the Hellenized world of first century Israel), and.

    T hey’re the three men in glittering velvet robes and fake beards in the living nativity at church. Sometimes they tow a live camel. Bearing gifts, they traversed afar, following yonder star Author: Chad Ashby. The first thing to know is that the author of Matthew’s Gospel used the Greek word magi, which does not actually mean ‘wise men’, but is a reference to the priests of the then-great Zoroastrian religion of the Persian Empire. When Matthew says the.

How did the Wise Men know. The Wise Men/Magi were educated and notable men who studied the stars and apparently knew the prophecies well (see also Who Were the Three Wise Men. Why Did Herod Fear Them?). It is thought to have been Daniel the Prophet who first introduced the Magi to the Holy Scriptures of the God of Israel.

The Wise Men, on the other hand, only saw the star when Jesus was born, and it took them some time to get to Jerusalem.

When they did finally find the. "The Wise Men: Six Friends and The World They Made," is an extraordinary, thought-provoking, and captivating look at the six men, most of whom were graduates of the famous Groton school and later graduates of Yale, Harvard, and Princeton who helped shape American foreign policy for way over fifty years/5.

The Bible story of the Three Wise Men, from the gospel of Matthew, is also known as the biblical Magi or the Three Kings. This Bible story regards a group of scholarly foreigners who traveled to visit Jesus after his birth, bearing gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

In two great statesmen died, W. Averell Harriman and Robert A. Lovett. Their passing underlines the theme of this book about "six friends and the world they made." Of the other four, Dean G.

Acheson, Charles E. (Chip) Bohlen, John J. McCloy and George F. Kennan, only the latter two are still with us. This book, therefore, is about a specific era in U.S. history, the era of America's. The following is an excerpt from The MacArthur New Testament Commentary on Matthew 2.

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, magi from the ea. We first read about the visit of the wise men in Matthew Matthew "Now AFTER Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men [Magi] from the east came to Jerusalem" According to this passage, the wise men did not.

Wherever the wise men were and whatever tribe they were from, they, like Lehi and Nephi, knew of Christ and were looking forward to His coming. I once attended a Christmas devotional where Elder Craig A. Cardon of the Seventy spoke. He asked, "How did the wise men know that the star was a.

As Brent Landau states in the Introduction to his recent translation of a forgotten ancient manuscript, Revelation of the Magi – The Lost Tale of the Wise Men’s Journey to Bethlehem (): “The Magi – usually known as the ‘Three Wise Men’ or ‘Three Kings’ – are easily the most famous of the visitors who appear at Jesus.

The legend that there were three, and that we know their names, is just a legend. The idea of three wise men may have developed, because there were three types of gifts presented by the wise men to Jesus (Matthew ).

In Daniel 2, the wise men were unable to tell King Nebuchadnezzar his dream, before attempting to interpret it. The wise men were not at the manger on Christmas night. When they arrived in Bethlehem several months to two years later, Joseph, Mary and Jesus were living in a house.

It must have been a magnificent sight when these wise men arrived in Jerusalem. Despite little information about them, we can easily tell why they were called wise men by observing what they did. THEY WERE CALLED WISE MEN BECAUSE #1. THEY SENSED GOD’S LEADING TO FOLLOW THE STAR (v 2, 9).Author: Kevin Burden.

So Herod called the men from the East, and said: ‘Go make a search for the young child. When you find him, let me know. I want to go and worship him too.’ But, really, Herod wanted to find the child to kill him.

Then the star moves ahead of the men to Bethʹlehem, and it stops over the place where the child is. The Wise Men undoubtedly were familiar with the Holy Book of the Hebrews - our Old Testament - in which it was prophesied that a Messiah for the Jews would be born in Bethlehem. It would be natural for the learned astrologers to connect the new phenomena in the Hebrew Constellation with the widely believed prophecy.

In that book, he recorded that the birth of Jesus was accompanied by an extraordinary celestial event: a star led the magi (the “wise men”) to Jesus. This star “went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was” (Matthew ).

In fact, the wise men came days, months, or possibly even years later. That is why Matthew says the wise men visited and worshiped Jesus in a house, not at the stable.

We know that the magi were wise men from "the East," most likely Persia, or modern-day Iran. This means the wise men traveled to miles to see the Christ child. The three Wise Men were scholars and therefore had access to the writings of Daniel.

Further, the three Wise Men were Magi, which was an order of the Pagan Medo-Persian religious order of Zoroaster.(1) The Magi were ancient interpreters of dreams and were astrologers (monthly prognosticators), enchanters, sorcerers, and magicians.

THE THREE WISE MEN WHO CAME TO WORSHIP JESUS HOW DID THEY KNOW TO COME. A STUDY OF DANIEL How did the Wise Men know that the star which they saw in the Heavens was so special that they set out on a very long journey on camels to go present gifts to the coming King?.

Biblical account. Traditional nativity scenes depict three "Wise Men" visiting the infant Jesus on the night of his birth, in a manger accompanied by the shepherds and angels, but this should be understood as an artistic convention allowing the two separate scenes of the Adoration of the Shepherds on the birth night and the later Adoration of the Magi to be combined for convenience.Everyone knows the legend of the three wise men's visit to Bethlehem as retold every Christmas.

Three Arabian princes followed a star to find baby Jesus, wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying. "Wise" as found in Matt. referring to the wise men is the Greek word "magos." Magos can be translated into "Magi, Sorcerer, or Wise Man." Most magi were also students of the stars and most ancient societies believed in heavenly signs.

The shepherds did come the night that Jesus was born but not the wise men nor the star.
