Magi followed the star to a house – Matthew 2:9-10

The Magi, also known as the Wise Men, follow the guiding star and arrive at Jesus’ house. He is now nine to eighteen months old.

The Magi found a paidion, (Greek) a child older than a new born baby but still under 2 years old.

We don’t know if the star was natural or one that God had created for the purpose of Jesus’ birth.

The Magi are first recorded Gentiles in the Bible to worship Jesus as the son of God here on earth.

The Magi may have come from the area we now call Iraq. If they did this it was were Daniel had lived.

Background Reading: Magi follow the star

9 After listening to the king, they set out, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it came and stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were ecstatic with joy.
