Epiphany and the Magi

NEW TESTAMENT APOCRYPHA WATCH: EPIPHANY: ANCIENT CHRISTIAN TEXT ADDS TO BIBLICAL STORY OF THE MAGI TRAVELING TO BETHLEHEM FOR BIRTH OF JESUS (KASTALIA MEDRANO, Newsweek). That text is, of course, The Revelation of the Magi, on which more here and here and links. It was edited by Dr. Brent Landau, "who modestly refers to himself as 'more or less' the world’s leading expert on the Magi."

I think that's about it for 'Tis the Season 2017.
