definitely my favorite bible thing i learned recently is that none of the gospels actually specify how many wise men visit jesus, just that they brought three gifts. in catholicism it is therefore assumed that there were three wise men, but orthodox christians assume twelve, but who knows. maybe it was 69 magi. just hangin out. world magi convention 4BC
@prophet_goddess I love that we, Catholics, are like 'No one person shows up without bringing a gift, so OBVIOUSLY IT'S THREE.'
@prophet_goddess Imagine how awkward it would be.
You just spent over a month traveling to see this holy child, and to your horror, you suddenly realize that the OTHER magi brought gifts.
