Nativity Story Characters ~ The Wise Men

The three wise men
The Three wise men (or in some translations Magi or kings) are traditionally celebrated at the feast of Epithany 6th Jan.  It was believed that the Baby Jesus may actually have been as old as two when they visited.
They had been looking at the stars and followed one that they believe foretold the coming of a sviour for all the people.
They brought gifts of 
Gold ~ symbolising Kingship
Frankinscence ~ symbolising Godship
and Myrrh ~ symbolising sacrifice and tears.
