When Lord Jesus was born he was visited by the tree wise men/kings. They are supposed to have come from the ‘East’. There was also seen in the sky a star/light from the ‘East’
Who/what were the three wise men/kings? What was the star/light?
The Hindus have the Vedas as the most revered scriptures. The Rigveda, Atharvaveda, Samaveda and Yajurveda. These scriptures are described as a CO-MIXTURE of metaphysical, moral and mystical knowledge!
In my view the three wise men/kings and the star/light were the not real people but Knowledge of metaphysical, moral and mystical.
The average Christian will find this very hard to swallow. Human false ego does not allow us to accept this kind of thinking.
My view is that Lord Jesus was being greeted, by the East, as the Son of God, coming to Earth.
Really knowledgeable should have no objection to this! Especially that the knowledge (star/light) and the forms (metaphysical, moral and mystical) coming from the East.
