The Wisemen and Jesus

The Three Wisemen saw the Star signaling Jesus' birth in the east which means they came from the West which most likely places them in North Africa ....many scholars can agree that two out of the three were Africans and one may have been a Canaanite or Persian.... Gold and frankincense were traded between the Middle East and North Africa, and myrrh was traded between Asia and east Africa....It is interesting that these men followed the stars this may signal that they dealt in astrology which is forbidden for Jews and Christians; In those ancient days one was considered wise if they were prophets or sorcerers. The surrounding nations around Israel dealt heavily in divination and astrology, so these men may have either been on non-Hebrew blood or members of the lost tribes who became familiar with the ways of the other nations.
