Matthew 2:11 …Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of…myrrh.
What a strange gift for a baby; myrrh. Myrrh is a oil used to prepare a body for burial. It is not something usually given to a new born. This wiseman knew however, that this baby was born to die. He knew the prophecies of Isaiah, which predicted that the Messiah would be a suffering servant. He knew God’s Son was born to die for our sins.
These magi were very wise. They understood Jesus. That He was the king, the priest and suffering servant all in one. Do you know Jesus in those roles? You should. The more we know about Jesus, could change our lives. Knowing who Jesus is makes us understand the Christmas story better.
