This poster would be a great addition to any home, to always remind us of the birth of Jesus Christ.

According to the Gospel of Matthew, the Wise Men came from the East, following a bright star that appeared in the sky. They were scholars or astrologers who were well-versed in studying the stars and interpreting their meaning. The number three is commonly associated with them because of the three gifts they presented to baby Jesus.

The Wise Men traveled a great distance to find the newborn King of the Jews, as they had seen his star in the East and interpreted it as a sign of his birth. The exact origin of the Wise Men is not mentioned in the Bible, but they are traditionally believed to have come from the regions of Persia, Arabia, or Babylon.

The three gifts they brought were symbolic: gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Gold represented kingship and wealth, frankincense symbolized deity and worship, and myrrh was a fragrant resin associated with burial and foreshadowing the sacrificial death of Jesus.

When the Wise Men arrived in Bethlehem, they visited King Herod to inquire about the location of the newborn king. Herod, feeling threatened by the news of a potential rival, asked the Wise Men to inform him of the child's whereabouts. However, warned in a dream, the Wise Men chose not to disclose the information to Herod and instead continued their journey to find Jesus.

The star led them to the house where Mary and Joseph were staying with the baby Jesus. Overjoyed, they worshipped him and presented their gifts. Afterward, they were warned in a dream not to return to Herod but to go back to their own country by another route.

The story of the Three Wise Men is traditionally celebrated as part of the Christian holiday of Epiphany, which falls on January 6th. It is seen as a representation of the revelation of Jesus to the Gentiles and the recognition of his divinity by those outside the Jewish community.

The specific names of the Three Wise Men—Melchior, Caspar, and Balthazar—are not mentioned in the Bible but have been popularized in Christian tradition and folklore. These names are often used in artistic representations and nativity plays.

The story of the Three Wise Men serves as a reminder of the universal significance of Jesus' birth and the adoration he received from people of different backgrounds and cultures.
