This Advent we are going to look at the Christmas story mostly from a ‘Gospel of Matthew” viewpoint, today focusing on the familiar story of the Magi and reviewing what we know about them (and what we do not).  We will notice that foreigners came a long way to worship Jesus and political and religious leaders from nearby Jerusalem did not.  The Magi somehow knew who Jesus really is already at his birth and gave gifts and worship he deserved as ‘truly God and truly human’ Immanuel – God With Us!
