The child

After Matthew 2:1-12

They find the child

with his mother,

the child foretold

and prophesized;

they fall down and

worship. They know who

this child is, who this child

represents, what this child

means. They see what

has not been seen before,

something truly new

under the sun. They

worship and they offer

gifts, offerings to the child,

the child who portends

what is to come.
