"We see here how Christ has three kinds of disciples.
- The priests and scribes, who know the Scripture and teach it to everybody, and do not come up to it themselves.
- Herod, who believes the Scripture, that Christ is now born; and yet goes right against it, trying to prevent what it says from being done.
- The pious Magi, who left country and house and home, and made it their one concern to find Christ."
