    I don't think the wise men were guided by a star. Maybe an alien craft? Stars are not moving around to guide travelers and just stop above where Jesus was. Something else was guiding the wise men towards Jesus.
  • Roy Camacho
    Notice how you said, " I don't think". This isn't about what WE think my brother. This is about what God's word says. God's word is above YOU. YOU are NOT above IT. It is above me, and it is above all of us. It was a star that guided them because God said it was a star. Mercy, peace and love be multiplied to you in the name of our Lord Christ Jesus. Shalom.
  • Andrew
    Did God say it? Or rather the wise men did? Everybody knows that if a star is close enough to be followed, everyone around would be burnt completely. I'm Christian, but I doesn't mean I lost my intelligence. When you read Jesus teachings and its wisdom, that's God's word. However the Gospel has some stories anecdotes. For instance, the story of Herod killing John, is God's word? Or just an story?
  • Ann
    Andrew, if God says in Matthew chapter 2, that the wise men were guided by the star, I believe God's word. I would be very careful in how you don't believe God's word. Very dangerous.

    God said it and i believe it but even if i don't want to or i can't understand it, god said it so that settles it. - 2 timothy3:16-17 his truth will set us free now and eternally.

    Matthew 2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. He was born King of the Jews. Born- again are Jews
  • BSP
    Verse 12 Many believe that God sent the start but in this verse we see that Jehovah God is not directing the men to Herod as the star originally had done.
  • Jackie
    We know that God is not slack in him promise to his children and we know that he will all ways be there when we call on his name he come in to the world as a baby but he is Lord over all .thank you Lord for saving my sole and makeing me whole

    Matthew 2:19 View whole chapter See verse in context But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, If Herod died here, how is it that he is still alive in Pauls time. He sit in judgement of Paul.

    Matthew 2:6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

    Brittany: Do You Know About Christmas? Or Easter? Maybe Easter is The Best Day Ever for Us. Jesus Died on The Cross to Pay for Our Sins. He came Out of The Grave. Now We Can be with Him Forever. I Will See You in Heaven

    umm...go back and look at Gen.3:15..these are the words of the Father of Jesus also Adam and Eve to the Serpent. The Father would bring about enmity rivalry between Satan who was behind the serpent , and Jesus...Then the Father goes further to state that although Satan would be allowed to bruise Jesus in the heel a death from which he has been resurrected Jesus causes the end of Satan.

    Wise men come from the east to worship Christ, Matthew 2:1, Matthew 2:2. Herod, hearing of the birth of our Lord, is greatly troubled, Matthew 2:3; and makes inquiry of the chief priests and scribes, where the Christ should be born, Matthew 2:4. They inform him of the prophecy relative to Bethlehem, Matthew 2:5, Matthew 2:6. The wise men, going to Bethlehem, are desired by Herod to bring him word

    If this is how Christ came into the world, then it must be ture.

    The Lord Could have Took Them straight to where His Son was Living, But He Took Them to See The King First. What's not Wise Here Your Comment or God's Plan. Call on Him.
  • Carl Harmeling
    Not very wise of the three wise men to ask a murderous king where his replacement has just been born. Cost a lot of mothers a lot of sorrow.

    Replying to Andrew Steinberg:

    “ Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”
    ([KJB_ John 16:13)
  • A disciple
    Mr. Steinberg (cont.); Jesus is written about distinctly in various and different ways throughout the Holy Scriptures; and is in some way especially shown in each and every Book of the Bible by a certain aspect of His Person and Glory. I would happily begin naming them to you and expounding upon each one, if you like! Start with the 3rd Chapter of 1st Moses, paying special attention to verse 15.
  • A disciple
    Mr. Steinberg; You are greatly mistaken! The Spirit of Prophecy IS THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST! From the very beginning, the Word of the LORD's Anointed was the whole meaning for the human species to be allowed to live out their lives in this world, AFTER THEY HAD SINNED, AND WERE CONDEMNED TO DEATH BY GOD! Until anyone comes to the Lord with a true heart in repentance there is no understanding!
  • Andrew steinberg
    Mathew was the biggest of ,missionaries that painted jesus in the old testement by usinglittle snippets instead of reading the whole chapter. Jesus was never mentioned by Isaiah, Hosea Or any prophet in the old testament , lies . they were lost and of Hellenize Syriac Jews far from the temple and Judah. Mathew lost as far as converting Jews but Paul did get the gentiles to become monotheistic,
  • Deborah
    Jesus was destined to save life, even when Herod sought to kill him, he was divinely protected by God. That's how God protects us, nothing can caught short our lives until our destines are fulfilled on earth. Let's all have these faith and never be afraid of pre-mature death no matter the challenges we are facing.
  • A disciple
    "Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came Magi (Persian Astrologers) from the east to Jerusalem, saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him." God brings about His plans if His people are ready, or not; and He rules over ALL! "And the Gentiles shall come to thy light.."

    Mark Diffin, thankfully Matthews credibility is fully intact. It is commonly accepted that many of the OT prophecies have dual meanings (what some refer to as "telescoping prophecies"). Matthews comment in v 23 has been a little more troubling for some but not many. Matthew may have been referring in some way to the OT Nazarite vow. A Nazarene or one that has vowed a Nazarite vow. Blessings!

    Yvonne; The Lord DOES want us to know all things and to fully understand His plans. How do we believe in something if we don't understand it? The Bible is a big Book full of knowledge and understanding and everything we need to learn from Him about life, the world, and all we are set to encounter until we're finished with this present existence. The Bible is full of Spirit-inspired prayers for us.
  • Yvonne
    I feel that who are we to try to address Gods plan. We might not understand it but he does, we can't change it, we must except it we don't know why, but God knows. The devil used the king Herroud to destroy those children. Jesus father was directed by God through dreams so that Jesus could be saved, he was predestined to die on the cross for your sins and mine. God I thank you.

    For reproof, for correction, for instructions in righteousness: v17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished for every good work. Also, Jesus is called the King of the Jews in all 4 gospels Mat, Mk., Lk., and Jn. His accusation or supersciption Pilate had placed on his cross. Jesus was and still is The King of the Jew weather he was in possession of a physical kingdom or not.
  • Dewey J
    I have read some perpostuous comments about the saint of this book. First 2 Peter 1:20,21 says, knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.v22 for the prophecy came not in old times by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were move by
    the Holy Ghost. 2 Tim. 3:16 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine
  • BSP
    Verse 13 and 14: We see that Jehovah God urged Joseph and Mary to take precautions to protect the life of Jesus. God wants parents today to take precaution to protect their children from danger.
