Tomorrow is the Epiphany of Our Lord Jesus Christ. It is the traditional commemoration of the arrival of the three kings to the presence of Christ to offer their gifts. The theological significance for Christians is that Jesus is the supreme manifestation of God. The presence of the kings is interpreted as the manifestation of God to Gentiles. These kings were certainly not Jews included in God’s Covenant relationship with Israel. The Epiphany is the mark of a new Covenant that encompasses Gentiles.

Being a Gentile, I am pro-Epiphany. We will celebrate this feast at our Wednesday 5:30 pm Eucharist. Come offer thanks for God’s manifestation and new Covenant.
