Discuss Together

People were glad that Jesus was born.  Mary and Joseph loved their little baby.  Happy shepherds came to see him the very night he was born.  And in the sky, a bright star was leading other people on a journey from a faraway land, to see Jesus, too.  The star was one of the biggest and brightest stars ever seen before!  For many years, Wise Men had studied stars in the sky.  When they saw this star, they knew that it was a sign from God to them that a king had been born.  “Let us go to see this new king”, the Wise Men said.  So they began a long journey and followed the star day after day, until the star finally led them to Bethlehem.

What did the wise men see and ask?  

Do Together

  • Bundle up and go outside after nightfall. Look at the stars— those are the same stars the shepherds saw in the sky the night Jesus was born. Take turns asking each other questions.  

The Visit of the Wise Men

Matthew 2:1-2

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men[a] from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose[b] and have come to worship him.”
