Three Wise Men Christmas Gifts To Jesus Names And Meanings

Explanation of the three gifts given to baby Jesus Christ from the Three Wise Men at Christmas in the Nativity Barn:

Wrapped Christmas Presents
The baby Jesus was given three gifts from the wise men whilst he was in the barn with his earth mother and father Mary and Joseph. They were Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh.

The reason he was given these three gifts from the wise men was because:

Gold: means power and riches and symbolised that Jesus was going to be King.

Frankincense: would show that Jesus is the Son of God and a holy man. In those days the little blocks of amber coloured resin from the trees would be burnt in Temples to produce a sweet smelling smoke.
