In the days of Herod, king of Judaea, wise men came from the east to Jerusalem. They were saying, “Where is HE that is born King of the Jews?  We have seen HIS star in the east and have come to worship HIM.”  When King Herod heard this he was very troubled and all of Jerusalem with him.  He gathered all the priests and scribes together and demanded they should tell him where Christ should be born. The scribes and priests told him that the child would be born in Bethlehem of Judaea as was written by the prophet, “And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.”  King Herod privately called the wise men and asked them the time at which the star appeared.  He then sent them to Bethlehem and told them to search diligently for the young child and when they find HIM to bring him word that he may come and worship HIM also.

            When they had heard the king, they departed from him and continued following the star which they had seen in the east and went before them till it came and stood over where the young child was.  When the wise men saw the star they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. 

            When they came into the house, they saw the young child with Mary HIS mother, and fell down, and worshipped HIM.  They opened their treasures and presented unto HIM gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.  Being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to King Herod, they departed into their country another way.  When they had departed from the young child and HIS mother, the angel of the Lord appeared unto Joseph in a dream saying, “Arise and take the young child and HIS mother and flee into Egypt, and be there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy HIM.  Joseph then arose and took the young child and HIS mother by night and departed for Egypt.  They stayed in Egypt until the death of King Herod that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, “Out of Egypt have I called my son”.

            When King Herod saw that the wise men did not return and he felt that they had insulted him, he was very wroth, and sent forth, and killed all the children that were in Bethlehem, and all the coasts thereof.  He slew all the children from two years old and under according to the time that he had inquired of the wise men.  Then was fulfilled that which was spoken of by the prophet Jeremy saying, “Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they were not.”

            When King Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph while in Egypt in a dream saying, “Arise and take the young child and His mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child’s life.  Joseph arose and took the young child and HIS mother, and came into the land of Israel, but when he heard that Archelaus, the son of Herod, reigned in Judaea in his father’s place, he was afraid to take the child there.   Being warned of GOD in a dream, Joseph turned aside into parts of Galilee.  They came and dwelt in the city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, HE shall be called a Nazarene.
