It's Day 2 and we're in Matthew 2.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verses 22-23 - There was a detail here about Nazareth that I hadn't noticed before - I'll have to do some digging on it.
- Verse 10 - The Magi did not follow the star in the sky all the way to Jerusalem. The star appeared in the opposite direction from which they traveled. Verse 2 tells us it appeared in the east, but they would have had to travel west to go to Jerusalem. They saw the star, knew (somehow) it was a sign about the birth of the king of the Jews, so they took the next logical step: go to the capital of Israel. This is why they're so excited in verse 10 when the star reappears. They'd been without it for their journey and now it showed up again.
