  • 1 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 saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him."
    3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him;
    4 and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.
    5 They told him, "In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet:
    6 "'And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for from you shall come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.'"
    7 Then Herod summoned the wise men secretly and ascertained from them what time the star had appeared.
    8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, saying, "Go and search diligently for the child, and when you have found him, bring me word, that I too may come and worship him."
    9 After listening to the king, they went on their way. And behold, the star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the child was.
    10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.
    11 And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.
    12 And being warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they departed to their own country by another way.

이해하기(Understanding)
A few wise men from the east made their way towards Jerusalem to worship Jesus because they had seen the star that told of his birth. King Herod and others in Jerusalem were surprised by the news of a king’s birth. They inquired to the priests and scholars about where the Christ was to be born. Herod confirmed with the traveling Wise Men where Jesus was to be born as told to him by the scholars in order to confirm Jesus’ location (vv. 1-8). On their way to Jerusalem, the Wise Men were once again led by the star to the place where Jesus was. The Wise Men knelt before Jesus and gave gifts of gold, myrh, and frankincense. These gifts symbolize that Jesus is not only the king of the Jews but the king of the whole world (vv. 9-12).

적용하기(Applying)
Who is God?
Jesus is worthy of our praise because He came as the King of the World. The Wise Men came from far away in the east to worship and bring gifts to Jesus. Worship and praise Jesus, the King of all kings.

What is the lesson for me?
There is a difference between knowing and believing. The priests and scholars of the law knew the truth that the Christ would be born in Bethlehem. However, they did not go to Bethlehem because they did not believe Jesus was the Christ. Is your knowledge of the Bible leading you to believe and worship Jesus? Knowing and believing should not be separate.

기도하기(Praying)
Help me to worship Jesus, who came as the great King to save us, with all my heart.
