Bible: Matthew 2:1-6

The Visit of the Wise Men

2:1 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem 1  in Judea, in the time 2  of King Herod, 3  wise men 4  from the East came to Jerusalem 5  2:2 saying, “Where is the one who is born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose 6  and have come to worship him.” 2:3 When King Herod 7  heard this he was alarmed, and all Jerusalem with him. 2:4 After assembling all the chief priests and experts in the law, 8  he asked them where the Christ 9  was to be born. 2:5 In Bethlehem of Judea,” they said, “for it is written this way by the prophet:

2:6And you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,

are in no way least among the rulers of Judah,

for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’ 10
