Bible Notes

Matthew 2:1-2 (10.01.22)

Matthew 2:1-2
1 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem 2 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.”

Compare the magi to the shepherds in Luke’s nativity story – it doesn’t matter who you are, religious or not religious, poor or wealthy, no matter what nationality or background you have, Jesus was born for you and is of importance to you, and the question and invitation of the Bible is to come and meet with him.

Jesus, in these early days of 2022, I come to you.
