On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him.
Who did the Israelites expect to find worshiping the Messiah? Strangers from a distant land? Surely not! But God invited the Magi to be witnesses to Jesus’ birth. These visitors from afar tell us something important about who Jesus is and what it means to follow him.
Our newest TOGETHER Bible study, “The Magi: Unexpected Guests,” takes a deep look at Matthew 2:1-12. We chose this passage in part because it highlights the idea that Jesus is the savior for ALL people. From this theme, the Bible study will help users:
- Tell how God used the Magi to show us that the Good news is for everyone.
- Be assured that the Good News of Jesus Christ is for all people, including us!
- Celebrate Christmas by planning to include or show love to God’s people we sometimes forget.
To really drive these main points home, we’re including a variety of multimedia resources. This includes fun hands-on activities, short video lessons, and group discussion questions. The variety of learning methods makes the study both engaging and entertaining! You can purchase this study at the link below.
