Herod and the wise men 
The Great Escape
Dreams and Prophecies
with emojis
* Some wise men πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘ (sometimes called magi) from the east see the stars align ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️and you know what that means. 
Oh, you don't ❓❓❓
Well, it means a special baby was born. πŸ‘ΆπŸ»πŸ‘ΆπŸ»πŸ‘ΆπŸ»
They go to King Herod and ask where the child is. OH OH Danger ‼️‼️‼️
* Not exactly the best move on their part. You see, Herod gets crazy jealous 😑😑and sends the wise men to find the baby πŸ‘ΆπŸ»πŸ‘ΆπŸ»πŸ‘ΆπŸ» and report back to him on the child's whereabouts. Danger ‼️ ‼️‼️
It's not so Herod can send a birthday present. 🎁🎁🎁
* The wise men find baby Jesus and bring a treasure chest of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’° 🏺🏺🏺 ⚱️⚱️⚱️
* But before they head out πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£they're warned in a DREAM 😴😴😴 NOT to tell Herod where the child is. 🀐🀐🀐
* Once the wise men leave πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘ an angel comes to Joseph inβ€”you guessed itβ€” a dream 😴😴😴 
In this one, Joseph is told to pack up πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ and head off to Egypt until further notice. 
Why the rush πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒ you ask ❓❓❓
Oh, only because Herod is out for blood πŸ’‰πŸ’‰πŸ’‰ and is looking to kill Jesus πŸ—‘πŸ—‘πŸ—‘ OH OH Danger‼️ ‼️‼️ Sounds like a valid reason! 
* Herod soon realizes that he was stood up by the wise men πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘ and he is NOT happy. πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜– Ha Ha ! 
* Since he wasn't told where the child was, he resolves to kill πŸ—‘πŸ—‘πŸ—‘ all infant boys in Bethlehem who are two years old or younger. πŸ‘ΆπŸ»πŸ‘ΆπŸ»πŸ‘ΆπŸ» 
And yet ANOTHER prophecy is fulfilledβ€”this time, Matthew quotes Jeremiah. 
* Finally, Herod dies ⚰️⚰️⚰️ and Jesus, Mary, and Joseph are in the clear πŸ†“πŸ†“πŸ†“ 
In yet another DREAM 😴😴😴 God gives them the go-ahead to return home. πŸ”‘πŸ”‘πŸ”‘
* But instead of going back to Judea, they settle in Galilee, which fulfills ANOTHER prophecy (aren't there a lot of prophecies)! although the source of this one is a bit fuzzy. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ happy ending πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
