Many stories have been written about the visit of the Three Kings from the Orient. Guided by a star, they came to Bethlehem to render homage to the newborn King Jesus Christ, Savior of the world. These visitors have been called Kings, Wise Men, Magi, and Astrologers – but their origin has remained obscure to say the least. The Christian tradition of the Kings visit stems from the Gospel of St. Mathew (2:1-2). However, many questions have not been answered like: Who were they? Why did they come? How did they know about Jesus, being pagans? Where did they come from? What were their names? Where were they buried? And where are their remains now?
Epiphany: A Story of Faith, Hope, and Revelation attempts to fill the gap of information that exists in the history of the Three Kings who visited the holy family at the time of Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem.
