Passage: Matthew 2:1–23
“The point of including the story about the Wise Men in Matthew’s Gospel is probably to show how wise men, even Gentile wise men, sought Jesus out while a Jewish king who should have known the OT prophecies neither personally sought out nor properly honored the new son of David.” – Ben Witherington, “Birth of Jesus” in Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, 73.
