8. Limerick

CRAP !!
The story in Matthew 2:1-12 does not reveal the names of the wise men/magi
nor even disclose how many there were. The number three is traditionally
assumed because three gifts are mentioned in the text. Their names were
assigned by tradition. Other speculation about these travelers has been that
Melchior was a Persian, Gaspar an East Indian and Balthazar a Babylonian.
Still other speculation is that one was old, one middle aged and one very
young. The driver behind these imaginings is the wish to present the magi as
representative of the whole world and all of the people in it.
