Three Wise Men

The community chorus I sing in is doing a Christmas concert next Monday and one of the carols we will sing is “We Three Kings of Orient Are.” I like that hymn but it is not accurate as the bible says three wise men not three kings. This is not a very important issue but it does point out that sometimes our cultural information does not track with the facts very well.
I point this out because of an advertisement I saw in a magazine today. It read:

“You can own actual coins of the three kings that visited Jesus in the manger.”

Glory here are con artist trying to bilk people out of their money selling coins that can not exist. What next?
