How many times have you seen baby Jesus in a manger visited by (3?) wise men or more accurately, the magi, (who were very competent observational astronomers most likely,) because remember, astrology was clearly condemned by God in Scripture (Deuteronomy 4:19). how many times & places have you seen this scene?
Turn your Bible to Mathew chapter 2 & discover the TRUTH! Firstly, the magi came to visit Jesus after he was born & they visited him not in a manger but in a house! Yes, look it up! Not a stable but a house! New International Version Mathew chapter 2 verse 11
On coming to the HOUSE, they saw THE CHILD or the young child ( no mention of baby that I can see) with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Furthermore, it doesn’t say how many men visited Jesus, so, 3 could be quite inaccurate!
So, why are we seeing these men standing in a stable, visiting baby Jesus? Is it important? What did Jesus mean when he said to the woman at the well that God’s people would worship Him in spirit & truth? Does it matter? Was Jesus serious about this? “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” — John 4:24
Interesting, isn’t it!
