Epiphany Sermon 2018


Passage: Matthew 2:1-12

Hi friends,

This past Sunday was Epiphany Sunday and so the sermon was on the visit of the Magi.  It strikes me as very interesting that while a powerful dictator (Herod) could not find the Messiah in his own back yard, and the religious authorities of Jesus' culture (the scribes and Pharisees) could not find the Messiah either, astrologers of an entirely different religion and culture found the Messiah by looking at the stars.  What does this say about what makes a search for God fruitful?
