Meanwhile, the same night that Jesus was born, a star appeared in the sky and in the East, three wise men were watching.

They knew this was special; and that a great king was born that night. Each decided to leave their country and follow the star so they could give gifts to the new king.

But on their way to find Jesus, do you know what happened?

God  had been guiding them by the star, but when they got there they apparently used their natural reasoning and wisdom, "Oh well, we're here now, we'll go ask the king!

Of course he'll know where the Messiah, this great King has been born. We'll go ask King  Herod, we'll be able to tell us, and his wise men".

So they went to the bad wicked King Herod to find out, where the King was being born, and he said, "Who is the King?  What other king besides me has being born in this country?- I'm the king!"

But at least he called his wise men and asked, "Hey, where's this guy suppose to be born anyway?- The Messiah of the Jews, this King of Jews?"

The prophet had said:

"And thoug Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, art not the least among the princes of Judah; for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule My people Israel".
