The Wise men saw the star in the constellation of Leo the Lion, the constellation representing Israel. They knew the prophecy of the coming king and set out for Jerusalem seeking Him. Those today who are wise recognize the hand of God in creation and in the lives of Christians who have been transformed by Christ and seek to know Him. Unlike the Wise Men, unbelievers today don’t have the prophecies and are drawn to Christians to find the source of the change they see. Therefore, it is important for Christians to be able to give a reason for the change in their lives. The Wise men gave Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to represent what he would become. Gold to represent His kingship, Frankincense to represent His priesthood, and myrrh to represent His death.
