The Magi came from the?

"The east" Commentary: Magi / Astrologers / Kings - all the same. The number of Magi is never mentioned in the Bible. There were three gifts, gold ( earthly kingship of the child ) frankincense (divine kingship of the child ) myrrh (ointment used in burial - prophecy of death of child). The number three might also be significant as to the sons of Noah, who at that time were thought to be the particular "races" (Japeth - Europeans; Shem - Semites Ham African) thus signifying that all the world (gentiles) came to the feet of the Christ.
