Angels, shepherds, stars and magi — known popularly as kings — are all part of the gospel stories of Jesus’ birth known as the Infancy Narratives. These and other elements of the stories carry rich meanings that would have been apparent to their original audiences but are lost to us. In this class we will explore the two canonical Infancy Narratives of Matthew and Luke and take a brief look at some of the narratives found in the gospels that are not included in the Bible.
