Matthew 2:1-12
The number 3 speaks of completion.  In this passage we find three kinds of people – those who are hostile to Jesus, those who are indifferent to Jesus and those who will worship Jesus.  There are three types of revelation – the general revelation in in the star that the Magi saw, a specific revelation in what the Magi say in calling Jesus the King of the Jews and the personal revelation where God reveals Himself through the child in the manger.  In the gifts that the Magi bring to Jesus the three offices of Jesus are revealed – God for Jesus as King, Frankincense for Jesus as Priest and Myrrh for Jesus as Saviour.
