The Magi who visited Jesus Christ at his birth! (for my Zoroastrian friends)

Dec 23, 2019 India Blog, Zoroastrian

The Statue of three Persian Magi raised in Brazil in honor of the 3 revered wise men who visited Jesus Christ when he was born and brought the first gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.. to the new born Jesus.

Some Bible Scholars say that the Magi (wise men) may have been Zoroastrian priests, and astrologers from Persia, during the reign of King Cyrus or Darius.The Bible says they came and worshiped the baby Jesus, and gave him the gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh. (There were probably more than three!)

The Magi are mentioned in the book of Daniel. Daniel was a Jewish prophet captive in Babylon. Daniel had correctly interpreted dreams for the King, and therefore he and the God of Israel were greatly respected even in Babylon!! So the Magi had probably heard the prophecies about the Messiah, from Daniel, during the reign of the Medo-Persian empire.

They came following the star, and looking for the baby Jesus.
