Quote of the Week by Bible Commentator David L. Turner on Matthew 2

Posted: December 17, 2008 by Rick Hogaboam in Quotables

It is ironic that the birth of Jesus produced only anxious fear in the leaders of Israel (2:3), while it was an occasion of overwhelming joy for the mysterious Gentile wise men. The devotion of the wise men is in stark contrast to Herod’s treachery and the seeming apathy of the chief priests and teachers of the law. Why were these wise men the only ones who traveled to Bethlehem? Matthew copyright © 2005 by David L. Turner. All rights reserved.

I hope that all will join the mysterious magi this Christmas season on fall on their faces before the Sovereign King Jesus.
