Daniel was chief of the Magi in Babylon almost 500 years before Jesus was born. Moreover, the 70 Weeks prophecy given to Daniel by Gabriel accurately predicts Jesus birth. Was the record of Daniel’s 70 Weeks prophecy available to the Magi that came to worship Jesus? Considering how Daniel was held in such high esteem by the king, it’s possible his writings would have been preserved as Head Magi in King Nebuchadnezzar’s court. Could this be the reason the Magi came at that time to seek out the new born king. Listen to Nelson look at this and other evidence for the Magi.
May you have a blessed Christmas with family and friends, and may God give you opportunities to witness to the unsaved among them, that this Jesus who came to earth 2,000 years ago is going to return to earth in the not too distant future. Just as there were many prophecies of Jesus first coming, such as Daniel 70 Weeks, there are far more prophecies of His second coming.. They need to know there eternal destiny depends upon whether they accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
