J. Evan Kreider spoke in absentia through Janice Kreider on the Epiphany. Herod the Great had been ruling Galilee with fire and fury since 40 B.C. and was insecure in his place as king of the Jews. Three wise men (Magi/Kings) from the East brought Jesus’ family highly symbolic gifts: gold (of kingship), frankincense (of deity), and myrrh (an embalming oil, of death). Jealousy can lead to insane actions, with dire consequences for other people. Dreams can guide people (even foreigners from other faiths) for God’s purposes. Are we seeking God’s guidance: in books, in the sky, and from our brothers & sisters in Christ? [KH]
