After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem, and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him, When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him, When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born, In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written, 👉 But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel. Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him, After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was, When they saw the star, they were overjoyed, And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.👉And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way, 👉When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him, So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt.
- According to Matthew 2:1-14. Herod planned to kill Jesus when Jesus was a child. Herod sent his men to find the child, when they saw the star they came to know where the birth of Jesus is taking place then they entered the room to confirm it, Although Mary the mother of Christ did not know that Herod had planned and he sent them to find the child, so they pretended in front of Mary & worshiped the baby Jesus, in fact they came into the room to confirm it.
