An Epiphany Present


From Cartoon Movement. That’s the trouble with the magi delivering their gifts, according to Matthew, when Jesus would have been old enough to talk…

For those who want something more serious on the occasion of Epiphany, I will point out that not only is Jesus a toddler in the story in Matthew, but the family lives in a house. Indeed, there is no indication in the story that the family has ever lived anywhere else than Bethlehem. Hopefully you know that already, but if not, you need to read Matthew and Luke more closely, paying attention to the differences and discrepancies between them.
