You know the story of the Three Wise Men of the East, and how they traveled from far away to offer their gifts at the manger-cradle in Bethlehem.  But have you ever heard the story of the Fourth Wise Man, who also saw the star rising and set out to follow it, yet did not arrive with the other Magi? The story expands the account of the Biblical Magi, recounted in the Gospel of Matthew. It tells about a "fourth" wise man, a priest of the Magi named Artaban, from Persia. Like the other Magi, he sees signs in the heavens that a King had been born among the Jews. Like them, he sets out to see the newborn ruler, carrying treasures to give as gifts to the child - a sapphire, a ruby, and a "pearl of great price." However, he stops along the way to help a dying man, which makes him late to meet with the caravan of the other three Wise Men. He then begins his journey alone, but arrives in Bethlehem three days late, too late to see the child, whose parents have fled to Egypt.
