Matthew 2
The wise men seeking to find the king of the Jews follow the star to Jerusalem. After stopping with Herod they are sent to Bethlehem. They find the child and worship him with gifts returning home a different way after being warned by an angel not to go back to Herod. Herod is furious and frightened for his position orders the massacre of all the boys in Bethlehem 2 years old and younger. Forewarned of this Joseph and Mary flee to Egypt, not returning home until Herod is dead.
