King of the Jews.The story of Jesus’ life begins and ends with this title (Matt. 27:37).
His star in the East. Remember that the wise men came from the East, where they saw His star. These wise men were no doubt the descendants of those wise men of Babylon over whom Daniel was placed (Dan. 2:48). His prophecy of the final days of Israel (Dan. 9:24-27) would have been known to them. They would have been watching and waiting for the sign of this star. See Numbers 24:17.
