The Magi Encounter Jesus - Encounters with Jesus, Ep. 3

The encounter of the Magi with Jesus show how God's rule is different that the rule of any other kings. The magi encounter Herod, a king that wants to hold onto power by force, even being willing to kill newborn babies in Bethlehem. Jesus is a different type of king. He is born humbly and vulnerable and yet, this is how God ushers in His kingdom into the world.

Passage: “From of old no one has heard
    or perceived by the ear,
no eye has seen a God besides you,
    who acts for those who wait for him.”

Isaiah 64:4
