December 20, 2020, Matthew 2:1-2, 7-15, ISSL Reflections Post 2

Take some time to reread the passage a couple of times –

IV.
This passage opens for us a way to notice that the same event, the same piece of history is seen by different folk in very different ways.

It also helps us notice that what one says is in some cases not at all what one means.

V.
Do we think Herold wants to “honor” or “worship” the “child who has been born king of the Jews”?

Do the wise men want to honor the child?

How do you understand what has led each to where they find themselves here?
