    The Feast of Epiphany 

     

    Matthew 2:1-12

     

    The season of Christmas is where we get God's gift to the world, Christ Jesus. The season of Epiphany is where we get to unwrap God's gift and see the glory of his divine nature shining through his humanity. Or as one hymn puts it, Epiphany is "God in man made manifest."

     

    Today, the glory of God is revealed through a star that leads the magi to Israel. The wise men are astrologers from a far off land, perhaps sorcerers who practiced magic and divination- certainly not those whom you'd expect to fall down before the new-born Lord and worship him with expensive gifts. But Christmas is all about God choosing the weak and foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and humbling the proud, casting the mighty from their thrones, and exalting the lowly. We rejoice because we too are those who were far off from God through sin. But we have been brought near to God  through the blood of Christ to worship him in spirit and in truth.
