Matthew 2, the visit of the Magi, flight to Egypt, the massacre in Ramah, return to Nazareth.

The Magi were the scientists of that day, combining astronomy, astrology, calendar keeping and natural sciences.

This passage is particularly interesting, with verse 15 put in the middle of a passage full of the most wonderful promises for Israel, ending with “a woman shall encompass a man.”

One of the possible sources for the  last quote:

In the Arab world, Christians are named Nazarenes, symbolized with the letter ‘Nun’ .

It was painted on Christian homes in Mosul  during the ISIS occupation, and Christians were systematically removed and some of  them killed.
