Transcript of the Story
Many years had passed as the people were awaiting their promised savior. During this time, some wise men journeyed from a different country to Jerusalem where they were meeting with the King, King Herod, and they asked of him where they would find this promised savior. They had followed a star to come to worship him.
Upon hearing this news, King Herod and all of his people with him were deeply troubled and King Herod sought the advice of his religious leaders and they informed him that the savior was to be born in Bethlehem, the town of David. For the prophets of old had written that a leader would come out of Bethlehem that would shepherd the people of Israel. Now upon hearing this, King Herod called the wise men back to him and said to them to go find the promised savior in Bethlehem and, that when they did, they were to return to him so that he could also go and worship him.
When the wise men left, they once again saw the star and they followed it to Bethlehem where they found the promised savior. And upon finding him, they bowed down and worshiped him, and they gave their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. And afterward, God warned them to not return back to King Herod, but to return home by a different route.
