On January 6, Christians celebrate the Ephinany, which commemorates the revelation of the Baby Jesus to the world. Intricately linked to this celebration, which is the final chapter of the Christmas season, is the story of the Magi or the “Wise Men.” Who exactly were these Zoroastrian astrologer-priests from the Persian Empire, and why did they follow a star that led them to the Baby Jesus, the same Great Conjunction we just witnessed last month? And what do they tell us about our own journey? To help us navigate these questions as well as to provide a look at her own fascinating journey is this episode’s guest, Dr. Sheda Vasseghi. She has a Master of Arts in Ancient History with an emphasis on ancient Persia, among other degrees.
