    Default The origins of the three gifts of three magi/kings


    First of all, I want to greet MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    source: "The Book of Adam and Eve" also called "The Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan".

    After Adam and Eve were exiled from the garden of Eden...

    Adam wept before the Lord God, and begged and
    entreated Him to give him something from the garden, as a
    token to him, wherein to be comforted.

    And God looked upon Adam's thought, and sent the angel
    Michael as far as the sea that reaches unto India, to take from
    thence golden rods and bring them to Adam.

    This did God in His wisdom, in order that these golden
    rods, being with Adam in the cave, should shine forth with
    light in the night around him, and put an end to his fear of
    the darkness.

    Then the angel Michael went down by God s order, took
    golden rods, as God had commanded him, and brought them
    to God.

    After these things, God commanded the angel Gabriel to
    go down to the garden, and say to the cherub who kept it,
    " Behold, God has commanded me to come into the garden,
    and to take thence sweet smelling incense, and give it to
    Adam."

    Then the angel Gabriel went down by God s order to the
    garden, and told the cherub as God had commanded him.

    The cherub then said, " Well." And [Gabriel] went in and
    took the incense.

    Then God commanded His angel Raphael to go down to the
    garden, and speak to the cherub about some myrrh, to give to
    Adam.

    And the angel Raphael went down and told the cherub as
    God had commanded him, and the cherub said, " Well." Then
    [Raphael] went in and took the myrrh.

    After these things God said unto Adam, " Thou didst ask
    of Me something from the garden, to be comforted therewith,
    and I have given thee these three tokens as a consolation to
    thee ; that thou trust in Me and in My covenant with thee.

    " For I will come and save thee; and kings shall bring me
    [when] in the flesh, gold, incense and myrrh ; gold as a token
    of My kingdom; incense as a token of My divinity; and
    myrrh as a token of My sufferings and of My death.

    .................................................. .

    Then Adam let his blessing descend upon Seth, and upon
    his children, and upon all his children s children.

    He then turned to his son Seth, and to Eve his wife, and
    said to them, " Preserve this gold, this incense, and this myrrh,
    that God has given us for a sign ; for in days that are coming,
    a flood will overwhelm the whole creation. But those who
    shall go into the ark shall take with them the gold, the incense,
    and the myrrh, together with my body; and will lay the gold,
    the incense, and the myrrh, with my body in the midst of the
    earth.

    Then, after a long time, the city in which the gold, the
    incense, and the myrrh are found with my body, shall be plundered.
    But when it is spoiled, the gold, the incense, and the
    myrrh shall be taken care of with the spoil that is kept ; and
    naught of them shall perish, until the Word of God, made
    man shall come ; when kings shall take them,* and shall offer
    to Him, gold in token of His being King ; incense, in token of
    His being God of heaven and earth ; and myrrh, in token of
    His passion.

    Hi bro,

    Igu rako comment bro ha. Biblically, it did not state that there actually were a specific number of kings during Jesus' birth- only the gifts. Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Lord!

    This is an apocryphal book bro just like the book of Enoch, jubilees, wisdom. These books are accepted in the Christian faith but not canonically included in the Bible.

    they were not kings. the 3 wise men were astrologers. 3 kings wandering around together walay bodyguards? then reports back to King herod about what they have learned? ang idea nga 3 kings kay gkan na sa OT...

    OT: hahahah. nindut sad ni imu bro. unless you're not joking.

    Anyway, yes. As all others above my post have said, there is NOT mention of the 3 KINGS. Ang gifts ra. Also, they are not Kings, but the 3 WISE MEN. Kay dba si King Herod man to ato na time?

    Or is my CL knowledge failing me? hahah
