When the Wise Men saw the star the Bible tells us that their joy was “exceeding great”. Why?
In this publication the author offers a partial explanation concerning the “exceeding great joy” of the Magi on seeing the star.

He also considers the four prophecies recorded in Matthew 2 which were fulfilled in the Lord Jesus Christ.
