Matthew 2:1–12 describes the arrival in Jerusalem of a group of wise men, sometime after Jesus’ birth. They are responding to the sight of a ”star” in the night sky, leading them to conclude the ”king of the Jews” had been born. King Herod is troubled by this news and sends them to Bethlehem. His deceitful orders are for the wise men to return and tell him where the child is. The travelling scholars are overjoyed to find the Christ, at last. They worship Him by bowing and presenting expensive gifts. Warned not to return to Herod, after all, they slip away by another route.
