In this worship gathering, we hear a message for Epiphany Sunday that focuses on why it was so important that the Magi visited Jesus. It wasn’t the gifts – it was who they were! Based on Matthew 2.1-12, you can watch the worship gathering in its entirety below, or just the message below that.
“Epiphany” – the feast that always falls on January 6. It means ‘revealing’ or ‘manifestation’. It recalls the time that foreign soothsayers followed a star and visited the child Jesus with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, marked in Matthew 2.1-12. I contend that this event, and not the giving of the Great Commission, marked the beginning of mission in the church.
