[AUTHOR]Gil Rugh said or, [/AUTHOR]Gentile strangers are recorded as coming on the scene to worship the Christ-child. In stark contrast are those who do not bother or deliberately will not, come to worship the One whose birth has been foretold.

Not only was the birth, and place of Jesus birth foretold but so too were many prophecies of events that would take place that all fit into the sovereign plans of God involving His working through the godly and ungodly people living at the time.
