The Voyage of the Three Wise Men

Matthew 2:1

In the Gospel of Matthew, we are told that Magi, wise men from the East, had spotted a star in the sky that indicated a new king had been born in Judah. They travel towards it. With little detail in the bible, painters were able to imagine a huge procession. In many cases, these wise men became kings.

" In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men[a] from the East came to Jerusalem, 2 asking, “Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage.” ”

" Then Herod secretly called for the wise men and learned from them the exact time when the star had appeared. 8 Then he sent them to Bethlehem, saying, “Go and search diligently for the child; and when you have found him, bring me word so that I may also go and pay him homage.” 9 When they had heard the king, they set out; and there, ahead of them, went the star that they had seen at its rising, until it stopped over the place where the child was. ”
