Day 8 - Caspar, one of the Magi
One legend tells that Caspar (or Gaspar) traveled from India to Bethlehem, Israel, a journey of roughly 2,500 miles. Looking at a map of bible times puts the journey in perspective.
What a stunning sight.....three wealthy and influential men bowing down before a baby laying on a bed of straw in a rickety and smelly stable. I would've loved to been a mouse in the corner watching this take place.
Caspar stands next to Melchior.
