Epiphany

Sunday 6th January is Epiphany – a major feast day in the Church calendar.

Epiphany celebrates the revelation of God the Son as a human being in Jesus Christ. Christians commemorate principally the visitation of the Biblical Magi to the Baby Jesus, and thus Jesus’ physical manifestation to the Gentiles.

Today the Magi (probably from Persia and followers of an ancient belief system called Zoroastrianism) are better known as the Three Wise Men or Three Kings (although Matthew’s Gospel doesn’t mention how many of them there were).
