Last week, we went to the church as a class. We looked at the nativity, talked about the wise men coming from other countries. The 3 wise men (3 kings) were some of the first people to worship Jesus. They were from different countries and didn’t speak the Hebrew language. God opened salvation to all peoples not just the Jewish people!
We had a prayer service for the Epiphany and lit a candle for our intentions (friends and family who may be sick, grieving or rejoicing) We stood in front of the altar near the Tabernacle, Baptism font, and the Ambry (Blest Are We p.120)
Presentation of Jesus
Presentation of Jesus in the temple 8 days after his birth. That is when His name was given. There he was greeted by Simeon and Anna.
After the wise men left, Herod was searching for the Christ child. Mary , Joseph and Jesus flee to Egypt until Herod died…for he wanted the “Baby King” dead.
Flight to Egypt
Finding the Child Jesus
Return to Nazareth and going to the Passover feast in Jerusalem when Jesus was 12 years old.
