Christmas Wisdom : The Story of the Wisemen

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.
