The Other Wiseman DOWNLOAD


Single Program 29:00 Minutes

The story tells about a "fourth" wise man named Artaban. Like the other Magi, he also sees signs proclaiming that a King had been born among the Jews and sets out to see the newborn ruler, carrying treasures to give to the child. However, he stops along the way to help a dying man and saves the life of a child which makes him late to meet with the caravan of the other three wise men. He travels to Egypt and to many other countries, searching for Jesus for many years and performing acts of charity along the way and arrives in Jerusalem just in time for the crucifixion of Jesus. He spends his last treasure to ransom a woman being sold into slavery. He is struck in the head by a falling roof tile and is about to die, having failed in his quest to find Jesus, but having done much good through charitable works. A voice tells him "Verily I say unto thee, Inasmuch as thou hast done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, thou hast done it unto me."(Matthew 25:40)[4] He dies in a calm radiance of wonder and joy. His treasures were accepted, and the Other Wise Man found his King.
