The Magi honored Jesus at His birth by giving Jesus gifts. These wise men were from east of Jerusalem and they could have traveled for up to two years to reach Jesus as they followed His star.
The ancestors of many eastern religions could have been part of that group of Magi. There could have been 30 Magi. No one knows their specific origin or numbers but they came from the east and apparently from a long way.
Would you like to join our church in honoring a local Buddhist congregation as People of the Mag this Christmas 2016? The head monk of a Virginian Beach Buddhist temple has agreed to receive a gift from us as People of the Magi.
