Numbers 24:2-7,15-17, Psalm 25, Matt. 21:23-27

The promise

The Jews of old had waited generations for the Messiah. The prophesy of God’s appearance was also known to others. The oracle, Balaam, saw the Israelites camped in the plains of Moab. He was inspired by God to proclaim a vision of God’s Son, who would be be born to these Jews. The three wise men from the east also knew of he same prophesy, written in their holy scriptures. They followed a star to Bethlehem. They knew what it signified. A Messiah and a saviour for all peoples.
