We saw His Star in the East (Mt 2.1-12)

In defiance of our weather, we are determined to finish our Christmas series on the theme suggested by the Moravian star. We began with Creation and ‘Let there be light’; then we looked at the pagan ‘soothsayer-for-hire’, Balaam and his remarkable prophecy, ‘A star shall come forth from Jacob’.

This week we come to the Christmas star and the arrival of the wise men. The passage reveals three attitudes toward the Star of Jacob: the earnest faith of seeking men, the concealed enmity of a seething man, and the dead accuracy of indifferent men. The only attitude that changes lives is that of those who seek the Saviour.

Read the notes while you listen.
