Sharing Gods Story

Matthew 2:1-12
Epiphany celebrates the search of
all peoples for God. Epiphany
means manifestation. This feast
day celebrates the revelation of
Jesus as king of the Gentiles as
well as the Jews. The Magi or wise
men or kings represent all of the
non-Jewish people who were
looking for signs from God.
All we know about the Magi
comes from this Sundays Gospel.
Their names, their races, their
ages, and their place of origin are
all legend. Because the Gospel
mentions three gifts - gold,
frankincense, and myrrh - we
think they were three kings. We
give them names and make them
of different ages and races.
Melchior is the old man with the
white hair and a white beard;
Balthasar is young and fair;
Caspar is black.

the hallmark of our

and our actions
