Matthew 2:1-2, 9-10 (NLT)
Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the reign of King Herod. About that time
some wise men from eastern lands arrived in Jerusalem, asking,
2 “Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come
to worship him.”
9 After this interview the wise men went their way. And the star they had seen in the east
guided them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the
child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were filled with joy!
