Wise men came from far away lands to worship a child who would be the King of the Jews and the Saviour of the world.
After Jesus was born, three wise men arrived in Jerusalem. They had followed the star from their country far, far away.
"We are looking for the baby who was born to be king of the Jews," they said. "We want to worship Him."
They were told they would find the baby in Bethlehem. So they traveled to Bethlehem and the Star continued to lead them.
When the three wise men found the baby Jesus in a manger with His mother and father, they fell to their knees and worshiped Him.
They gave Him gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh.
Then the wisemen left and returned to their own country. . .
. . . knowing that they had seen the child who would one day save all people.
