Myth: The Wisemen Visited the Baby Jesus

The imagery of the Magi is locked into the minds of most as being present at the time of Jesus’ birth. Bearing gifts of gold, frankincense, and myhrr we see them in nearly every Christmas movie depicting the Nativity as right there was Mary swaddles the Baby Jesus in the manger.

But that’s not how the Bible tells the story.

The wisemen first visited Jesus when he was living in a house, not a stable. And the scripture says he was a child, not a baby. Look it up, it is in Matthew 2:11.

This is just one of many myths associated with The Magi.
