The story of the wise men is a story that is shrouded in mystery. From tradition we seem to know all the facts and details. But as we study the scripture we find there are a lot of questions we cannot answer about the wise men from the biblical text. For example; how many were there? We don’t know. Where did they come from? We don’t know. How long did their journey take? We don’t know. They seem to show up mysteriously – and just as mysteriously they are gone. But their story lives on as we celebrate and remember every Christmas.
