Day 10 - The Magi Are Coming

What are the Magi Cloë? and why are they coming?
 

The Magi are three Wise Men who lived in a different country than Jesus. Among other things they studied the stars and planets and they found the star that shone over Bethlehem. It was so big and so bright compared to the other stars that they knew it must be very important.


So I bet they decided to follow it, right Cloë?

That's right Tallulah. The Church will celebrate their arrival this coming Sunday.


We actually don't know very much about them and only Matthew speaks about them in his Gospel. But there is a lot of tradition around their visit including their names.

Melchior, a Persian scholar
Caspar, an Indian scholar
Balthazar , an Arabian scholar

Today's activity is learning to draw the first Wise Man. And if you go to the link below you will find other videos that teach you how to draw the other Wise Men as well as other parts of the Nativity.
