Today’s wise man is part of Playmobil set #4886 and can be viewed/ordered here.
Finally, all three wise men are present. Of course we set them up for the time when they realize that there is no mention anywhere of specifically how many were in the party of the Magi, but each king brings a different gift, which sets the scene up nicely. Already the various pieces of the camel’s heavy load have been spread around. The coins in the chest of gold have been spread around and the ropes around the camel itself need to be re-wrapped a number of times. As the platter fills though, the approaching Christmas celebration becomes easier to grasp.
Day 21 – John 1: 1-8
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all people. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
