Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh

This topic contains info, links, and lesson ideas related to the three gifts of the Magi in Matthew 2:  gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Some of these links go to previous posts at Rotation.org that fit this subject. 

You are welcome to add your own links and ideas.



 There are a number of lesson topics and ideas in our public Magi forum which reference gold, frankincense, and myrrh. For example, this Magi Games Workshop lesson or this Magi Art "scented potpourri" workshop.

 The meaning of the word "Messiah" as it relates to a "pleasing smell" (such as frankincense) is discussed here. More about "smells" and the purpose of frankincense in Temple offerings is discussed in this Zechariah in the Temple topic.

 The Magi, a lesson set written by the Rotation.org Writing Team (supporting member access required). It includes a "computer" presentation lesson with a free software download that teaches the meaning of the three gifts: 

"Treasures" ~ A Computer or "Presentation" Workshop.  This lesson was written both for those with only one computer and for those with many. It uses a fun piece of Bible software to explore the entire story and focus in on the meaning of the Magi's gifts, and those gifts young people can bring to Jesus.
