The Kings brought gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh.

-Gold represents purity and the Royal Crown and is a fitting gift for our King.

-Frankincense are the white bits from the gum resin of a tree that grows in Arabia, and was used to make special incense which was then burned in the Temple by the priests as a sweet-smelling offering to God, and reminds us that Jesus is both a priest and an offering to God on our behalf.

-Myrrh comes from a small bush in Arabia and it was used to make perfume and annointing oil. It was used by the Egyptians in their embalming fluids, and as a perfume it was used by many nations as part of preparing a body for burial.

Lev 2:2 And he shall bring it to Aaron's sons the priests: and he shall take thereout his handful of the flour thereof, and of the oil thereof, with all the frankincensethereof; and the priest shall burn the memorial of it upon the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD:
