Christmas Jottings

Regarding Matthew 2:11

 
“The treasures they brought spoke volumes.

 

Gold is a symbol of deity and glory; it speaks of the shining perfection of His divine Person.

 

Frankincense is an ointment or perfume; it suggests the fragrance of the life of sinless perfection.

 

Myrrh is a bitter herb; it presages the sufferings He would endure in bearing the sins of the world.”

William MacDonald, Believers Bible Commentary, New Testament. Thomas Nelson Publishers, Nashville, 1990. p. 23.
