     | 3,013 views

    Part 3 in series The Three Gifts. Scripture records that the third gift given to Jesus by the Magi was myrrh – a gift given to one who was to die. Why was Jesus given this gift at such a young age?

    Contributed by Dennis Davidson on Apr 26, 2011
    based on 70 ratings
     | 28,317 views

    To speak of the Paradoxes of the Passion is to disclose the very center of that which is the object of our faith. Paradoxes of the Passion call us to look past the shallowness of man & see the Crucifixion of Christ from God's perspective. For the death

    Contributed by Owen Bourgaize on Apr 16, 2001
    based on 73 ratings
     | 1,422 views

    The full significance of the Incarnation is only seen when its dark side is understood - in the Sign of a Sword to Mary’s heart, the Symbol of Myrrh as an offering from the wise men and the Sorrow of Rachael over her dead children.

In the opening verses of his Gospel, John had already ...read more

  • Of Superstars And Starlight Series

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Jan 5, 2009
     | 1,132 views

    We have not yet learned the difference between superficial superstars and the starlight wisdom of Jesus. He transforms gold into Kingdom power, frankincense into respect, and myrrh into the preface for resurrection.

    In 1970 Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber brought out a rock opera with the provocative title, Jesus Christ Superstar. Predictably, not everyone was amused. Some condemned it as sacrilegious. But if you listened carefully and let your defenses down a notch or two, their work communicated the ...read more
