Matthew 2:1-2 ” 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 in the East and have come to worship Him.’ “

These Wise Men came searching for a King. They themselves weren’t kings but rather priests or court advisors, skilled in ancient astrology and interpreting astronomical phenomena. When this magnificent star appeared in the East they consulted all they could to determine what it meant. They found a reference in Numbers 24:17, part of the Jewish Pentateuch, where it said, “I see Him, but not now; I behold Him, but not near. A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel.” Looking farther, they found Genesis 49:10 which read, “The scepter will not depart from Judea…” Knowing then they were looking for royalty, they set out to find this King of the Jews. Have you been on your own quest…searching for something, but not really knowing what? Have you been filling that void inside with all kinds of things that still leave you feeling empty? The answer is you too are searching for a King…a King to rule over your heart, mind, and soul…and His Name is Jesus.
