Star-led Chieftains

 Epiphany:
‘A usually sudden revelation or insight into the nature, essence, or meaning of something’.
( The Chambers Dictionary )
 
‘ . . . . and when they were come into the house, they saw the young Child,
with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshipped Him.’
 ( St Matthew, chapter 2, verse 11 )

    On the Feast of the Epiphany, the Church remembers the visit of the Magi,
the ‘wise men from the East’, popularly known as the ‘three kings’,
who were led by the star to worship the Christ child in the stable at Bethlehem.

'Magi, Christ adoring, offer Him incense, gold and myrrh'.
‘ . . . . . Magi, Christ adoring, offer Him incense, gold, and myrrh’.

At the coming of the Magi, Jesus was revealed as Emmanuel, ‘God with us’,
for the entire human race, Jews and Gentiles alike,
for time and for eternity.
