The Star of Bethlehem 4: GO a Different Way Home”
Rev. Dr. Mary Miller

Matthew 2:12-15New American Standard Bible (NASB)
12 And having been warned by God in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by another way.

The Flight to Egypt
13 Now when they had gone, behold, an angel of the Lord *appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up! Take the Child and His mother and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is going to search for the Child to destroy Him.”

14 So [a]Joseph got up and took the Child and His mother while it was still night, and left for Egypt. 15 He [b]remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called My Son.”
