Epiphany and the Search for the Magi

Today’s the Feast of the Epiphany. It’s one of the most beloved images of the Nativity story – the three kings riding their camels, following a star to Bethlehem. But little is known about them – were they kings? Magi? “wise men?” In fact, many modern scholars have dismissed them as merely pious legend. Fr Dwight Longenecker joins us with the evidence for who they were and why we can believe they really visited the infant Christ.

Fr. Dwight Longenecker

Fr. Dwight Longenecker is the author of Mystery of the Magi: The Quest to Identify the Three Wise Men. He was raised in an Evangelical home in Pennsylvania. After graduating from the fundamentalist Bob Jones University with a degree in Speech and English, he went to study theology at Oxford University. He eventually became an Anglican priest in England. In 1995 Fr. Dwight and his family were received into the Catholic Church. Since then, he has become a prolific writer and author of several books, including Challenging Catholics, More Christianity, Quest for the Creed and The Gargoyle Code. In December 2006 he was ordained as a Catholic priest under the special pastoral provision for married former Anglican clergy. He now serves as pastor of Our Lady of the Rosary parish in Greenville, South Carolina.
