And The Lord Said, "Let There Be Lego": Part Three

Fig. 1. Gathering together all the chief priests and experts on the Law of Moses, King Herod asked them where the messiah was to be born. They said to him, 'At Bethlehem in Judea, just as it was written by the prophet.' Matthew 2:4-5

Fig. 2. Then King Herod summoned the magi. He sent them off to Bethlehem, saying, 'Go and search for the young child. When you have found him, let me know, so that I may also go and do him homage.' Matthew 2:7

Fig. 3. Having listened to the king, the magi set off. The star that they had seen rising went on before them until it came to a stop over the place where the child was. Matthew 2:9

Fig. 4. They came into the house and saw the young child with his mother Mary. Matthew 2:11

Fig. 5. They bowed down and did him homage. Opening their treasures, they offered to him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Matthew 2:11

Fig. 6. But the magi were warned in a dream that they should not return to King Herod, and so they traveled back to their own country by a different route. Matthew 2:12

Fig. 7. When the magi had left, suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, 'Get up and take the child and his mother. Flee into Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for King Herod will be searching for the child to destroy him.' Matthew 2:13

Fig. 8. Joseph got up that night and took the child and his mother, and went to Egypt. Matthew 2:14

Fig. 9. When King Herod realized that he had been tricked by the magi, he was furious. Matthew 2:16

Fig. 11. After King Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in Egypt in a dream, saying, 'Get up and take the child and his mother. Go to the land of Israel, for those who sought to kill the child are dead.' Matthew 2:19-20

Fig. 12. But when he heard that Archelaus, the son of King Herod, was reigning over Judea, Joseph was afraid to go there. And having been warned in a dream, he withdrew to the region of Galilee, and came to live in a town called Nazareth. Matthew 2:22

Fig. 13. The child grew and became strong and filled with wisdom. Luke 2:40
