We are in a series called, “The Night that Changed Everything.”  We’re looking at the significance of Christmas, a night that changed much more than most of us imagine.  We’ll see its impact on five segments of society:

  1. The Night That Changed the Religious
  2. The Night That Changed the Powerful
  3. The Night That Changed the Poor
  4. The Night That Changed You
  5. The Night That Changed the Wise

This is our final week, when we look at how Jesus’ birth changed the wise.  As you might have guessed, we’ll look at the story of the Magi or wise men who visited Jesus. They are unexpected worshippers of Jesus.  We already explored how the shepherds were unusual, but at least they were local.  The Magi travelled a long way, and they were highly educated astrologers.

They are the last people you’d expect to be worshipping a baby, but here they are.  They are important for us to consider, because even today there are those who say they are too smart to believe in Jesus, or any religion.  We’ll explore that this week.

Question: Describe a wise person.  How do you recognize one?
