A passage contrasting the true King vs. the false king via their interactions with the magi. Also, a contrast of true Gentile worshippers vs. false Jewish/semi-Jewish enemies - a sad contrast too often true around Matthew's readers. Central idea? - Wise Men Worship the True King with Sincerity, Joy and Royal Gifts.
