"Where is the newborn king of the Jews?"

The Feast of the Epiphany which we celebrate this Sunday, Jan. 6, 2012, is well known with its ever-popular story of the three wise men who visited the newborn Jesus. Our Discussion Questions will guide your Sunday Bible Study with family, friends and church groups.

Matthew shaped the story well to point out that from the very beginning of his life, Jesus was rejected by the Jewish leaders and accepted by the gentiles. The ‘magi from the east’ represent the gentiles. They knew things that king Herod and the Jewish leaders did not. That is why he and others were so shocked to hear from the ‘magi’ that they had come to pay homage to the newborn king of the Jews.

You will find all of the Sunday homilies we have compiled for you this week at this link. You can also read our full coverage of this week's Catholic world by clicking here.

Another eventful week in our Catholic World. Have a great and blessed new week.

Keep the Faith. Peace.
