Matthew 2:7-8 (NLT)
7 Then Herod sent a private message to the wise men, asking them to come see him. At this meeting he learned the exact time when they first saw the star. 8 Then he told them, “Go to Bethlehem and search carefully for the child. And when you find him, come back and tell me so that I can go and worship him, too!”
TIME OF DAY:
Indeterminate from scripture – Evening
Herod (seated on throne) with palace guard (holding spear), female cupbearer (on steps) & royal adviser (behind Herod holding staff), 3 wise men (on left of picture, at foot of steps)
I’ve recognised that many of my characters wear simple clothing. For this scene I decided to give King Herod & the 3 wise men much more opulent clothing.
