Three Three Wise Men Bearing Gifts Initiation


n Christian tradition the Magi, also known as the Three Wise Men, the Three Kings, or Kings from the East, were probably Persian priests, proficient in astrology. The Gospel of Matthew states that they came "from the east to

Jerusalem" to worship the Christ, "born King of the Jews". The Magi were the first religious figures to worship Christ, and for this reason the story of the Magi is particularly respected and popular among many Christians. Over the centuries, the Christian church has embroidered many circumstantial details about the Magi. One of the most important changes was their “promotion” from astrologers to kings. The general view is that this is linked to Old Testament prophesies that have the Messiah being worshipped by kings in Isaiah and the Psalms.


ccording to Matthew, the Magi navigated by following a star which came to be

known as the Star of Bethlehem. Unlike Luke, the Matthew pays no attention to the actual birth of Jesus, focusing instead on what occurred before and after.

Skipping the actual birth, Matthew introduces the Magi, who have come to pay their respects, while accidentally informing King Herod of Jesus' existence. The word Magi is a Latinization of the plural of the Greek word magos (Μαγος , pl. Μαγοι), which is a derivative from Old Persian Magupati. The term is a specific occupational title referring to the priestly caste of a branch of Zoroastrianism. As part of their religion, these priests paid particular attention to the stars, and gained an international reputation for astrology.


t that time astrology was a highly regarded science, only later giving rise to aspects of mathematics and astronomy, as well as the modern and less respectable practice of fortune-telling going by the same name. An indication of their

astrological credentials is in the phrase translated in the King James Version of the Bible that Herod inquired of them diligently, which is actually a Greek technical word referring directly to astrological sciences of the time. erod tried to trick them into revealing where Jesus was, so that he might be put to death. Upon finding Jesus, the Magi gave him an unspecified number of gifts, amongst which were three highly symbolic ones: gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Because these three gifts were recorded, there is a perception that there were three givers, although the Gospel account is silent on this matter.


he Magi were then warned in dreams that revealed Herod's deadly intentions for the child and decided to return home by a different route, in order to thwart them. This prompted Herod to resort to killing all the young children in Bethlehem, an act

called the Massacre of the Innocents, in an attempt to eliminate a rival heir to his throne. Jesus and his family had, however, escaped to Egypt beforehand. After these events, the magi returned home and passed into historical obscurity.


n the West the names of the Magi have been settled since the 8th century as Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar. The names of the Magi derive from an early 6th century Greek manuscript in Alexandria. Different names have been used in other

traditions. Marco Polo claimed that he was shown the three tombs of the Magi at Saba south of Tehran in the 1270s, in which their bodies were still intact, with hair and beard remaining


Shrine of the Three Kings at Cologne Cathedral, according to tradition, contains

the bones of the Three Wise Men. Reputedly they were first discovered by Saint Helena on her famous pilgrimage to Palestine and the Holy Lands. She took the

remains to the church of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. They were later moved to Milan, before being sent to their current resting place by the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick I in AD 1164. The City of Milan celebrates its part in the tradition by holding a medieval costume parade every 6 January.


pon meeting Jesus, the Magi are described as handing over gifts and "falling down" in joyous praise. The use of the term "falling down" more properly means lying prostrate on the ground, which, together with the use of kneeling in Luke's

birth narrative, had an important effect on Christian religious practice. Previously both Jewish and Roman tradition had viewed kneeling and prostration as undignified, reserved in Jewish tradition for manifestations of God, although for Persians it was a sign of great respect, often showed to the king. But inspired by these verses, kneeling and prostration were adopted in the early Church. While prostration is generally no longer featured, kneeling has remained an important element of Christian worship to this day.


hree of the gifts are explicitly identified in Matthew — gold, frankincense and myrrh. In a hymn of the late 4th-century Spanish poet Prudentius, the three gifts have already gained their medieval interpretation as prophetic emblems of Jesus'

identity, familiar in the carol We Three Kings by John Henry Hopkins, Jr., 1857. The gifts are prophetic and symbolic — gold as a symbol of kingship on earth, frankincense as a symbol of priestly office, and myrrh (embalming oil) as a symbol of death.


he gifts themselves have also been criticized as useless to a poor carpenter and his family. This has often been the target of comic satire in television and other comedy. What subsequently happened to the gifts is never mentioned in the

scripture, but several traditions have developed. One story has the gold being stolen by the two thieves who were later crucified alongside Jesus. Another tale has the gold being entrusted to and then misappropriated by Judas. Another story is that the family quickly pawned or sold them and used the money to finance their flight to Egypt.


n the Monastery of St. Paul of Mount Athos there is a 15th century golden case containing purportedly the Gifts of the Magi. Apparently this was part of the relics of the Holy Palace of Constantinople and it is claimed they were displayed

there since the 4th century AD. After the Athens earthquake of September 9, 1999 they were temporarily displayed in Athens in order to strengthen faith and raise money for earthquake victims.


here is still great controversy over exactly what the Magi saw in the skies. The modern distinction between stars and planets was unknown. Was it a shooting star or even a comet? Readers who want to know more will find adequate and

conflicting material in the reference books or in Wikipedia. They certainly saw something which, for them, was of great significance.


olidays celebrating the arrival of the Magi traditionally recognise a distinction between the date of their arrival and the date of Jesus' birth. Matthew's

introduction of the Magi gives the reader no reason to believe that they were

present on the night of the birth, instead stating that they arrived at some point after Jesus had been born (perhaps as much as a year). Christianity celebrates the Magi on the day of Epiphany, January 6, the last of the twelve

days of Christmas.


tradition in Central Europe involves writing the initials of the three kings above

the main door of the home to confer blessings on the occupants for the New Year. For example, K + M + B 2008.

In France and Belgium, the holiday is celebrated with a special tradition: within a family, a cake is baked which contains one single bean. Whoever gets the bean is "crowned" king for the remainder of the holiday.


his tradition also exists in Spain, but with one small variant; the cake, in this case actually a ring-shaped pastry or Roscón de Reyes, is most commonly bought, not

baked, and it contains a small figurine of a Baby Jesus and a dry broad bean. The

one who gets the figurine is crowned, but whoever gets the bean has to pay the value of the cake to the person that originally bought it.

In Mexico they have the same ring-shaped cake Rosca de Reyes, it contains figurines of the Baby Jesus. Whoever gets a figurine is supposed to buy tamales for the Candelaria feast (Candlemas) on February the second.


he Magi have featured in much religious and devotional art over the centuries. More generally the Magi appear in popular Nativity scenes and other Christmas decorations. They are featured in Menotti's opera Amahl and the Night Visitors,

and in several Christmas carols, of which the best-known English one is We Three Kings. Sentimental narrative detail is included in the novel and movie Ben-Hur. Balthasar appears there as an old man, who goes back to Palestine to see the former child Jesus become an adult. It has been suggested that Christmas cards featuring the Magi outsell those with shepherds. The twentieth-century poet T.S. Eliot wrote a poem The Journey of the Magi


t is worth remembering that these Magi came, bringing their gifts, from a very different religious tradition to Jesus. To the Jews, they were outsiders, even descendants of ancient enemies. Historically, astrologers have not been particularly

welcome in most Christian or Jewish traditions. Most religions (and this includes the new Age) believe they are right and, by implication, all others are wrong. Jesus belongs to all religious traditions yet is the property of none, as he transcends them all and should not be denied to any.

What can I give Him Poor as I am? If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb: If I were a wise man, I would do my part: what Yet what I can I give Him – Give my heart
