Matthew 2:11 …Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold…
The first Wiseman brought Jesus gold. Gold represents that Jesus was born to be a king. This was promised to David, that one of his ancestors would sit on his throne for eternity. Jesus was related to David through both Mary and Joseph. Joseph’s ancestors were the former kings of the nations, through David’s son Solomon. Mary’s line was connected to David through his son Nathan.
Jesus is the King of Kings. There is no greater king than Him. This magi brought Him this costly gift and worshiped Him. Jesus confirmed His Kingship to Pilate in John 18:37.
37 Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a KING. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”
Worship the King of Kings as you celebrate Christmas!
