Christmas Verses – Magi and Herod

Christmas Verses – Magi and Herod

Balaam is the guy with the talking donkey who was hired to curse Israel. The Lord would not let him, so he delivers a prophecy about Jesus and the destruction of Israel’s enemies. ( Numbers 24:17 -19)

17 “I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near. A star will come out of Jacob;
a scepter will rise out of Israel. He will crush the foreheads of Moab, the skulls of all the people of Sheth. 18 Edom will be conquered; Seir, his enemy, will be conquered, but Israel will grow strong. 19 A ruler will come out of Jacob and destroy the survivors of the city.” (NIV)

This great verse covers Jesus, the Star, and Herod (Edom). Herod was not a Jew but an Edomite. To see more about them click here: Herod. For more about Balaam: Lord my/your God and Amalekites – Part 2

Psalm138: May all the kings of the earth praise you, Lord, when they hear what you havecopy-wisemen-2.jpg decreed and Psalm 72: 10 May the kings of Tarshish and of distant shores bring tribute to him. May the kings of Sheba and Seba present him gifts. New International Version (NIV) These verses describe the Magi coming to praise the new King of Israel and present Him with gifts.
