* In MikeRoyko's humorous column "Mary and Joe: Chicago Style," the Nativity is set in 1960s [[TheWindyCity Chicago]], where the Magi are mistaken for hippies and detained for illegal possession of gold and suspicious herbs. Meanwhile, there's no room for a poor couple from out of town in any of the city's social services, but Mary gets treated for post-partum delusion when she mentions who the baby's father is...

Added DiffLines:

* {{Astrologer}}: The Magi interpret the StarOfBethlehem to announce the birth of UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}}; they're exactly right.


Added DiffLines:

* CourtMage: Some historical interpretations of the word "Magi" see their role as closer to this rather than being kings themselves.

* They are the main characters of an eponymous animated movie made in Spain by 2D animators from Don Bluth and Disney who'd been put out of a job when Don Bluth's studio and Disney's European subdivision, respectively, were dissolved. It centers on the three's quest to ''get'' the gifts in the first place so that they can give it to "[[{{Jesus}} the newborn King of all Kings]]". Their efforts are countered by King Herode and his demonic advisor Belial.

The Eastern church gives a variety of different names for the kings. In the West, the names have been settled since the 8th century as Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar.

Balthasar, but the New Testament never explicitly identifies any of the Magi by name.

* In ''Literature/LambTheGospelAccordingToBiff'', Jesus' childhood buddy Levi, (but mostly called by his nickname Biff) is resurrected to tell his version of the Gospel. In this version, the years where Jesus disappears from the Bible he spent looking for the 3 wise men, trying to learn ''how'' to be the Messiah. In the book, the three turn out to be an immortal ([[ImmortalityImmorality and rather immoral]]) magician, a [[WarriorMonk Shaolin master]], and a hermetic [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yogi Yogi.]] Jesus learns important things from all of them, even if sometimes the most important thing he learns is what ''not'' to do.

According to Matthew, the magi followed a star which came to be known as the StarOfBethlehem. As they approached Jerusalem, Herod tried to trick them into revealing where Jesus was, so that he might be put to death. Upon finding Jesus, they gave him three symbolic gifts: gold, frankincense and myrrh. The tradition of gift giving for Christians dates back to this story. In many countries, they're the equivalent of SantaClaus. Furthermore, they have dreams from God warning them of King Herod's murderous true intentions for Jesus and return home by a different route to ensure they tell him nothing. Unfortunately, this inadvertently leads to Herod committing the Massacre of the Innocents in Bethlehem to attempt to remove this threat to his throne.
