CHRISTMAS FROM MAGIS’ VIEWPOINT - written by Tanis Harms
TOPIC: Christ’s birth
SCRIPTURE: Matthew 2:7-12
Style: drama/conversation: the magi have
. a discussion after meeting the baby Jesus
Cast: MAGI 1 & 2
(MAGI enter and talk amongst each other. They are still
in awe from seeing Jesus.)
MAGI 1 I have seen the King of kings. I have beheld
. His glory.
MAGI 2 We traveled very far, and it was worth
. every single day of our long hard journey.
MAGI 1 Amen.
MAGI 2 We could have brought ALL our treasures
. and given it to the Christ-child,
. and it still would not have been enough.
MAGI 1 Amen-amen. I see how this Child has changed
. the hearts of men already.
MAGI 2 This Child is very great, and I believe
. He will do something very important
. which will change the world in some way.
MAGI 1 Yes, and sadly, many rulers will not
. appreciate this.
MAGI 2 That is why we must return home
. by another way.
MAGI 1 We were to report back to king Herod.
MAGI 2 I had a dream last night. God warned me
. in this dream not to return to Herod.
. I believe this man means to harm this Child.
. I am sure Herod sees this Child
. as a threat to his kingdom.
MAGI 1 I fear this Child’s life will meet with
. an untimely death.
MAGI 2 Perhaps, but if so, there will be purpose.
. The mystery of Jesus’s birth will most likely
. be revealed at His death.
