And your thoughts about this story?
If the Magi are descendants of Seth, then aren't we all? Noah would have to be a descendant of Seth if these men were. And we are all related back to Noah.
The Huffington Post Religion section, enough said.
It's not an extant document but only an interpretation of past events. Probably a nice story, definitely interesting where it was located, but just an apocryphal text.
==The document dates from the 8th-century (AD 700s). Is it of any historical value? I'm not really sure. After all, it is almost 800 years after the fact. However one or two of the points are well accepted historically. That there were more than three magi seems likely. That they may have been awaiting a sign (star) does not sound out of the realm of possibility. After all, they clearly followed the star prepared to meet someone important. As for the other stuff, historians who study those cultures can provide insight on the likelihood of those points.
It encourages the practice of astrology.
I see nothing of any benefit in the document.
