Today we will explore the escape to Egypt and the evil deeds by Herod that made it necessary. It was part of God’s plan and was prophesied, as well as Joseph’s obedient decision to return the young family to Nazareth.  Matthew’s point here is the humble beginnings of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  Herod’s evil opposition is symbolic of all failure to ‘worship the King’, the true identity of the Baby in the manger who came to give himself for us to make us forever right with God.
