As we reach the last in our series of Christmas lessons looking at why Jesus was born, we move from learning about ordinary shepherds who were told about Jesus’ birth by God’s own messengers, to some evidently wealthy and important men who understood the signs of the times and came to worship Jesus as King of kings.
And, we learn about the king – King Herod – who didn’t want God’s king and thought he could somehow thwart God’s plan. We see the importance of worshipping Jesus as King, and the best way to do so: by turning from our sin and trusting in Him as our saviour.
Here is a summary of the lesson:

Bible Story: Wise Men Visited Jesus.
Bible Scripture: Matthew 2
Story Point: Jesus was born to be King – the King of kings.
Key Verse: “They asked, “They asked, “Where is the child who has been born to be king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose. Now we have come to worship him.”” Matthew 2:2 (NIrV)
“But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.” Galatians 4:4-5 (ESV)
Here are some questions to think about, perhaps over the Christmas holidays:
- What does it mean to worship Jesus as King?
- How can we know that what Jesus wants for us is good for us?
- What makes it hard to worship Jesus as King?
- Why do you think some people do not want to submit to Jesus as King?
(e.g. see Matthew 16:24)
- What makes Jesus the perfect King?
(see Philippians 2:5-8)
- How can we worship Jesus as King?
(e.g. see Romans 6:22)
