What Child Is This? The Voice of the Magi

The question remains, “What Child Is This?” Although wise men or magi specifically are not mentioned as characters in the carol, their notifiable actions of worship and generosity lead the lyrics of the third stanza.

"So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh…"

The wise men make their appearance in Matthew's gospel account of the Christmas story. From the start of chapter two, we are introduced to these men and discover some details about their origins and intentions. As we understand who these wise men were, we can begin to see a reflection of some of their attributes found in the life of Jesus. Let us allow their lives to help us understand "what child is this."
