    Chapter 7

    The Wise Men

    Wise Men who lived in other lands knew what the prophets had said about the birth of Jesus. When they saw a new star in the sky, they knew that Jesus was born. Matt. 2:1–2

    They visit Herod

    Knowing that Jesus would be king, the Wise Men went to see King Herod in Jerusalem and asked him where the new king was. Herod told them that they would find Jesus in Bethlehem. Matt. 2:1–2, 8

    They find Jesus

    The Wise Men went there and found Jesus. They knelt and worshiped Him and gave Him gifts. Then they went home. Matt. 2:11–12
