The Magi are intriguing characters in the Nativity story. Think about it: mysterious visitors from the east see a star and then travel a long way from home to bring lavish gifts to an infant king. Who comes up with stuff like that? Uh…God did. So we are spending these weeks before Christmas looking at the account of the Magi in Matthew 2. We got off to a great start in our They Saw the Star series with a message titled “Excitement and Expectancy,” and we will follow that up this weekend with message two of three called “Tragedy and Triumph.” If you missed the first message in the series, be sure to check it out.
