“Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, ‘Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.'” (Matthew 2:1-2)
January sixth is the day in the church calendar that we remember the visit of the wise men to Jesus and His family. We call this day Epiphany, meaning Jesus’ manifestation as both God and man. What does it mean for you and me? It means that Jesus is the King for all people, for the whole world, not just for the Jewish people. He is the true King who loves us all so very much, the true King who is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
