Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem saying.."Where is he was has been born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East, and have come to worship him" ..and lo, the star, which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came to rest over the place where the child was. ~ Matthean Gospel

The Coming of the Magi By Ed and Jackie SpeelAlong their great journey from Medes in northern Persia, the true purpose of their divine mission had been slowly revealed to them in dreams (and nightmares) by the Creator Ahura Mazda. They would travel first to Herodian Jerusalem where they would announce the birth of the newborn King of the Jews in the village of Bethlehem. This announcement would provoke the Roman client King into ordering the execution of all young male children so as to avoid the loss of his own throne.
And so the family of the baby Jesus would be willingly taken to safety out of Iudaea. In the fire temple there would come a great strengthening of the waters. And from this holy transformation would emerge a great prophet in the shadow of the exalted deity of Wisdom, Ahura Mazda. Throughout Middle World he would teach the union of the soul (urvan) with its guardian spirit (fravashi). And set Zoroastrianism on its proper path to the world's greatest modern religion. This article is part of the Zoroastrian Jesus thread.
