Why did the Magi wish to enquire about a Saviour ?

First, the Magi belonged to a religion which accepted a relation between personal existence on this planet and the course of the stars. This relation was deeply studied and had a whole„set of

rules and interpretations. The event and course of a new star or comet made them expect the birth of an exceptional person. At this moment one may and should accept a divine inspirttion of the Magi, making use of their natural Occupations

Secondly, It is not improbable that the hope of a universal Saviour which was very widespread through the civilisation of Hellenism should be particularly well-known in a country where the Jews had long lived as exiles and where their religion was open to the curiosity of all.
