1. Read Matthew 2:1-12.
2. What do you think the presence of the wise men in Jerusalem after the birth of the Messiah says about God’s glory?
3. Why do you think King Herod and all of Jerusalem were “disturbed” and not happy to hear about the birth of the King of the Jews? What are some things that make people disturbed to hear the good news of Jesus today?
4. What does this passage say about the wise men’s motivation for seeking Jesus? What should our motivation be for seeking Jesus?
5. What does the failure of Herod’s plan say about the sovereignty of God against the rage of man? What are some other examples of governments and kingdoms that have raged against God and failed?
6. Pray for our church; that our members will be on a mission among lost family and friends this holiday season.
