Tradition has the WISE MEN visiting Jesus
   at the same time as the SHEPHERDS, but the
Bible tells us it was some time after they
came with wonderful gifts, which speak
   to us even today... 


"And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his Mother, and fell down, and worshipped HIM; and when they had opened their treasures; they presented unto HIM gifts; GOLD, FRANKINCENSE AND MYRRH"                                                             Matthew 2 v 11                                                                              
 God gave the 'MAGI' a sign, the STAR to bring them to Christ and they gave HIM gifts.
