The Adoration of the Magi

Matthew 2:11

In the Gospel of Matthew, the baby Jesus is not visited by shepherds, but by strangers from a land in the East, and they are bearing presents. There are very few details in Matthew's account, so painters had a lot of room to let their imaginations run wild. This scene was a popular one, and is known as the Adoration of the Magi.

All paintings here are in the public domain, so they are free to use.

"And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

Gospel of Luke 2:8-12

" Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I am a virgin?” The angel said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be holy; he will be called Son of God. And now, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son; and this is the sixth month for her who was said to be barren. For nothing will be impossible with God.” Then Mary said, “Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.” Then the angel departed from her.”
