Verses 1-23

The Kingdom was not ready for the King, so a reception for Him was not arranged and organized by those who should have been waiting for Him. They were in rebellion. The King's advent was heralded by a star, and a few subject souls of a nation other than the chosen were guided by it to the King, and, notwithstanding the poverty of His earthly surroundings, they poured out their gifts-gold, frankincense, and myrrh. The underworld of evil was moved to its center, and found vent through the false king, Herod, in his slaughter of the innocents. Heaven and hell were thus moved at Jesus' coming, and those on earth nearest to each in some way recognized the fact. The great crown remained in ignorance.
