Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, "Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him." - Matthew 2:1-2 (ESV) What is Christmas without Santa Claus? For many in the evangelical world this is a question that splits individuals and families. Is he a fun figure to encourage kindness and obedience during the season? Or is it a myth that encourages us to lie to your kids? Don't worry I'm not stepping into the Catastrophic Claus Controversy, but I would encourage you to check out what we do know about the real Pugilist Not So Jolly Non-Elf. However, there are other mysterious figures in the real Christmas story. This week we take a look at some figures that are usually pictured around the nativity but weren't really there. Who they are, where they are from, and why they are there helps point us to the true nature of the one who has come. I encourage you to read through Matthew 2 as we prepare to look at the Magi this week in our series - 'The Cast of Christmas'. Why not invite someone to come with you?
