Discussion Questions:

Feel free to use some or all of these questions in your cell group, Bible study, or with your family.  Some questions will need to be reworded or omitted for smaller children.

1) The story of the wise men is a familiar one.  If you grew up with this story, how was it told to you?  What do you remember people saying it was about? 

2) Have you ever received a large or unexpected gift from someone you didn’t really know?  What was that experience like? 

3) God revealed the birth of Christ to pagan magicians through their use of astrology.  Does that make their religion good or true?  What does it say about God that he would speak to these people through these methods?

4)  How have you seen Christ revealed in strange or unexpected ways? 

5)  Does God reveal himself to non-Christians today?  Does a person need to become a Christian in order to be in right relationship with God?  What does it take to be in right relationship with God?
