    Interesting article. I’ve found that some facts in well known Bible stories need ‘digging into’ to enable us to separate truth from legend. The age of Jesus when the wisemen visited is one of those facts. The Bible doesn’t give His age but we find clues – Luke (2:21) that Jesus was circumcised at 8 days old; We also know from Luke 2:22-24, that when the 40 days of Mary’s “uncleanness” had passed (Leviticus12:4.), they presented Jesus, their first born son in the temple in Jerusalem, according to God’s Law . Herod asked the wisemen when they had first seen the star (Matthew 2:7) and on this basis later killed all of the male children in Bethlehem, age two and under (Matthew 2:16). The wisemen came during the reign of King Herod, whom we know died in 4 BC. With this evidence can’t we assume that Jesus was between 41 days and 2 years old when the wisemen arrived. The wisemen had to have come after Jesus’ presentation in the temple, that is, after Jesus was 40 days old because, Matthew tells us that after the wisemen departed, an angel warned Joseph to flee to Egypt, since Herod would seek to kill Jesus. According to Scripture, Joseph left that very night and went to Egypt (2:13-15). This would have left no time or opportunity for the presentation in the temple, which we know happened.
