In this class we cover Matthew 2:1-23, the story of the visit of the wise men, Herod's murder of the infant boys of Bethlehem, and Joseph and Mary's sojourn to Egypt and return to settle in Galilee. We'll address who were the wise men, where did they come from, why was Herod so troubled by their appearance, what kind of ruler Herod was, and many other details that flesh out the story and give us greater picture of how God works to carry out His plan and purpose.
