The Epiphany of the Lord, Year C

Epiphany: The Mystery of the Magi


***Subscribe or Login for Full Access.***

Every year on the Second Sunday after Christmas, the Church celebrates the great feast of Epiphany. And on this feast the readings are the same: whether it’s year A, B, or C, we are going to look at the same readings every single year. This is of course the great day where we celebrate the mystery of the revelation, or the unveiling, of Christ’s kingship and his divinity. That is what Epiphany means, it is a kind of revelation or unveiling or appearing is actually probably a better translation. And in this case, it’s the appearing of Christ the King, Christ the divine Son of God. This time what we are going to do is we are going to look at the Gospel. This year, as always, it’s taken from the Gospel of Matthew and the account of the Magi, which is arguably for many people, the most iconic mystery associated with the Christmas season. The image of the Magi coming to the stable—Christ is in a manger—and bringing him the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Everyone knows about the Magi, but who are they? Why are they there? How do they know about the mystery of who Jesus was in the coming of the King? What is the significance of the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh? Those are all questions that a lot of times we have not necessarily explored in any depth. So that is what we are going to do today as we look at the great mystery of the Feast of Epiphany. So the Gospel for today begins in Matthew 2:1–12 and this is what it says...

The Seven Sacraments: Are They Biblical?

Wives Do What?!
Richard Wise
And the two shall become one

Here’s the deal. Husbands and wives are helpmates to heaven. This is a great presentation on how to do that. Matrimony is about a covenant based on sacrificial love. That would be a God based relationship.

Excellent Resource

Great study on the Mass as Biblical worship. If you’ve ever wondered why the Mass is structured the way it is, this is the Bible study for you. Brant Pitre is a dynamic and engaging speaker, and I highly recommend anything from him.

Very informative.

A wonderful presentation! I now have a much better understanding of this great saint. As I have been commissioned to paint an icon of St Joseph it has been timely and inspirational.

Knowing the Context Removes the Blinders

You cannot understand what St. Paul is teaching if you don't know who he is speaking to and how these people lived in the first century. You must understand the historical background, and no one explains it better than Dr. Petre. He opens up the first century, shows us how the gentiles lived and, more importantly, how Christ wanted them to live. The sad truth is that we face a similar culture today, and it gives me hope that the Church and its teachings survived and will survive again. If I had anything to say about it, I would insist that every engaged couple view this presentation. St. Paul's teachings are as relevant today as they were twenty centuries ago. I've been married for 35 years, but I learned a little more on how to improve my relationship with my husband.

Do I recommend this product to others? Absolutely! Everyone can learn from it.
