"A King, a Fool, and Wise Men" Matthew 2:1-12 (Advent 2016: The Presentation of the King)

As we enjoy our 3rd Sunday of Advent this year, we will take a look at the gathering of "kings" immediately after Jesus' birth. King Herod is visited by the "kings" from the east who come bearing news about the birth of the "King of the Jews." As Matthew unfolds this section of the Christmas story, we discover that this group of 3 kings is actually a story about a king, a fool and wise men. The fool and wise men teach us so much about responding to God's Royal Son in wisdom and worship.
