God Comes to Us in Our Seeking

The story of the magi is a missionary story. God reveals Himself to the world beyond the bounds of Israel. The magi were likely from Persia, and had received the prophecies handed down most likely from Daniel while the Jews were in exile. Unlike the shepherds, who were not seeking the Lord, the magi sought Him, and made every effort to find Him, and to worship Him.
