Christmas Verse Writing Challenge Day 15, Matthew 2:1-6

Matthew 2:1-6New Life Version (NLV)

Wise Men Visit the Young Child Jesus

Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem in the country of Judea. It was the time when Herod was king of that part of the country. Soon after Jesus was born, some wise men who learned things from stars came to Jerusalem from the East. They asked, “Where is the King of the Jews Who has been born? We have seen His star in the East. We have come to worship Him.”
King Herod heard this. He and all the people of Jerusalem were worried. He called together all the religious leaders of the Jews and the teachers of the Law. Herod asked them where Christ was to be born. They said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea. The early preacher wrote, ‘You, Bethlehem of Judah, are not the least of the leaders of Judah. Out of you will come a King Who will lead My people the Jews.’”
