The Wise Men from the East

The Wise Men from the East Many readers of the Bible assume that there were three Wise Men and that they came to worship Jesus immediately after His birth, while still at the manger.

Indeed also, He gives new life as sons of God to all who, having believed that Light of the Truth of the Gospel, believe on Him and receive Him as their Lord and Savior.
