The Myth of the Magi - https://t.co/L7iJaDSP8EThe Myth of the Magi https://t.co/L7iJaDSP8EPreachers love the first Sunday in Advent. It's the one time we can tell everyone in the congregation to wake up. @IbnKhaldune Re-read Matthew 27:53-54. The text does not demand that he saw the temple veil being torn. @LoveAsILoveYou Yes, but this helps one visualize what was there two thousand years ago and why the church is constructed the way it is.
