Ephiphany 2024

The Feast of Epiphany, also known as Three Kings’ Day, is celebrated on January 6th in Western Christianity to commemorate the visit of the Magi, wise men or kings from the East, to the baby Jesus. The Magi are celebrated particularly in Spain and Latin American countries, marked by parades, meals, and gift-giving, similar to how Christmas is celebrated in other parts of the world. The image of three wise men from the East bringing precious gifts and paying homage to the child Jesus is linked inextricably with today’s Nativity scenes. However, the Magi’s visit story is not found in all four canonical Gospels. Apart from the Gospel, according to Matthew, the other three Gospels say nothing about these magi. So, who are the Magi, or Three Kings, who visited the infant Jesus? https://www.ancient-origins.net/history-famous-people/three-kings-003966
