Epiphany

A Christmas crib is incomplete without the three Magi offering their gifts to baby Jesus, but do we know the actual facts? Here are few Epiphany facts worth knowing.

Epiphany is a special part of Christmas and the story of Jesus' birth. The word Epiphany comes from the Greek epiphaneia, meaning "reveal" ,"appearance" or "manifestation," and refers to the manifestation of Jesus Christ to the world.

In Western Christianity, the feast commemorates Jesus' physical manifestation to the Three Kings, thus the revelation of God incarnate as Messiah. Eastern Christians, on the other hand, see the baptism of Christ as his manifestation to the world as the Son of God, and this is what they celebrate on January 19th (since they observe the Julian calendar).

The Gospel of Matthew is the only Gospel that mentions the three Magi, or the (three) wise men or (three) kings. Matthew chapter 2 describes them as the men who came "from the east" to pay respect to the "King of the Jews."" Matthew 2:11 states "And when they came into the house, they saw the young childwith Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh."

The Magi visited Jesus bearing gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. The gifts were very symbolic: gold stood for the royal nature of Jesus and his kingship on earth. The incense was a symbol of his divinity, and myrrh, which was customarily used as embalming oil, heralded Jesus' sacrificial death. However, all three gifts were known as typical offerings to a king.
