The missing pieces in the puzzle

Introduction

Who were the Magi in the Gospel of Matthew?


Who were the Magi in the Gospel of Matthew? Why did they come all the way from the East to Bethlehem to acknowledge the brith of Jesus? Why did they follow the shining star and brought three gifts? Why did they bring with them gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh as an offering to Jesus? Were they Persian Zoroastrians' priests according to most Christian scholars (see below links as a few examples)?

The story of the Magi at Christmas



“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born.​..(They)  presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh." Matthew 2:1-12

Good and bad are two sides of the same coin.

Which side do we choose to flip the coin?



7. Faravashi -The Authentic Self

Faravashi: The spirit of Aura Mazda within us like an eagle. 


Faravashi is the symbol of Zoroastrians. It is a human with two wings like an eagle. It represents the ultimate purpose of human on Earth. It is an inner alchemy to transcend ourself from the lower self to the higher while we are alive. Our life on Earth is like being in a cocoon in order to grow and to become a higher human being like Faravashi. We are here to learn how to fly like an eagle (Faravashi) to the ultimate sky of Ahura Mazda (The Supreme Being).

10.The Story of Creation from Persian's view

Life on earth is like being at the university -A school to learn and to graduate at the end. 

11. Final Exam (Death)


We are not sent here to be punished. Our life on Earth is like being at the university. We are here to be transformed as a caterpillar (human) to a butterfly (Faravashi- the True Self). 

Did we fulfil our task at this university? Or, did we waste our time? Did we really "kill the time'" or  the time was killing us? We shall see at the "Final Exam."
