At the birth of Jesus wise men/Magi travelled from the east in search of the child who was king of the Jews. They had travelled very far, some believe the journey could have taken them up to two or three years. They were now in Jerusalem where their activities are recorded in Matthew 2:1-12. What amazes me is the fact that when Herod asked the chief priests and teachers of the law, where the Christ was to be born they had the answer but did not join in the search for him. Only two groups sought the child, the wise men and Herod, one to worship him the other to kill him. These three groups remain to this day, they all know about the Christ but one very unlikely group seek to worship him, another seek to rid the earth of his presence and finally the group that has all the information and detailed knowledge but does not care to find or worship the person. Speaking of the wise men Matthew Henry in his commentary says, -They might have said, ‘If such a prince be born, we shall hear of him shortly in our own country, and it will be time enough then to pay our homage to him.’ But so impatient were they to be better acquainted with him, that they took a long journey on purpose to enquire after him. Note, Those who truly desire to know Christ, and find him, will not regard pains or perils in seeking after him.- Remember that wise men seek to worship Jesus but fools can’t be bothered.
