Are We the Wisemen?

 

In Matthew 2, the Magi (the real name for the “wisemen” of the Christmas story) come to visit Jesus.  We get only a few details about these men, but their story is of such importance that Matthew, inspired by the Holy Spirit, includes these men in his work about Jesus.  Matthew ignores the shepherds that Luke tells us about, and skips several months to tell the story of the Magi’s visit.  

Why? What is it about the magi that makes God and Matthew think they are so important?
