They Come Bearing Gifts

The title of this jigsaw puzzle they-come-bearing-giftsrefers to the  Magi, or “Wise Men” who came from the East [Persia, maybe?] to visit the Christ Child who had just been born in Bethlehem. The book of Matthew in the New Testament of the Bible, the second chapter says this –

“In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, “Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage.” … When they had heard the king, they set out; and there, ahead of them, went the star that they had seen at its rising, until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw that the star had stopped, they were overwhelmed with joy. 11 On entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother; and they knelt down and paid him homage. Then, opening their treasure chests, they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they left for their own country by another road.”
