Thoughts: “Well, we found him.”
“Yes, but not as we expected.”
“It was a very humble home.”
“But there was no doubt that this child was born King of the Jews.”
“No, the star led us directly to his home.”
“Will his parents know to treasure our gifts?”
“Yes, I think they will. His mother seemed wise beyond her years.”
“Perhaps we were wrong to ask Herod for directions.”
“But he assured us he wanted to go worship the child, also.”
“Surely you didn’t believe him.”
“No, of course not. That’s why we’re going home a different way.”
Discussion: How would history have been changed if the wisemen had not consulted Herod?
Activity: Imagine a neighbor of Joseph and Mary in Nazareth telling about the visit of the wisemen.
