Biblia lɛ etsɔɔɔ ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi lɛ agbɛ́ii. The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia lɛ kɛɛ akɛ, “ayɛ adesãi komɛi ni atãa ni tsɔɔ akɛ atsɛɔ ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi nɛɛ akɛ Gaspar, Melchior, kɛ Balthasar.”

 Mɛɛ be “nilelɔi” lɛ yasara Yesu lɛ?

Eeenyɛ efee akɛ ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi lɛ yasara Yesu be ni eye nyɔji babaoo. Nɔ ni hãa wɔkɛɔ nakai ji akɛ, Maŋtsɛ Herode, ni miitao agbe Yesu lɛ fã koni agbe gbekɛbii hii ni eye afii enyɔ kɛ mɛi ni shɛɛɛ nakai lɛ fɛɛ. Ehã agbe gbekɛbii hii ni eye nakai afii lɛ yɛ amaniɛ ni ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi lɛ babɔ lɛ hewɔ.​—Mateo 2:16.

Jeee gbi gbɛkɛ ni afɔ Yesu lɛ ni ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi lɛ yasara lɛ lɛ. Biblia lɛ kɛɔ akɛ: “Be ni amɛbote shĩa lɛ mli lɛ, amɛyana gbekɛ lɛ kɛ emami Maria.” (Mateo 2:11) Enɛ tsɔɔ akɛ, be ni amɛyasara Yesu lɛ, no mli lɛ, Yesu weku lɛ eyahi shĩa ko mli, ni akɛ Yesu jeee abifao ni kã nɔ ni kooloi yeɔ niyenii yɛ mli lɛ mli.​—Luka 2:16.

 Ani Nyɔŋmɔ ji mɔ ni hã “nilelɔi” lɛ nyiɛ “ŋulami” ni jɛ Betlehem lɛ sɛɛ lɛ?

Mɛi komɛi heɔ amɛyeɔ akɛ Nyɔŋmɔ ji mɔ ni tsu nɔ ni akɛɛ eji ŋulami ni jɛ Betlehem lɛ koni etsɔɔ ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi lɛ gbɛ kɛya Yesu ŋɔɔ lɛ. Naa yiŋtoo komɛi ahewɔ ni enɛ nyɛŋ afee anɔkwale.

  • Nɔ ni ana lɛ tamɔ ŋulami lɛ nyiɛ ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi lɛ ahiɛ kɛtee Yerusalem klɛŋklɛŋ. Biblia lɛ kɛɔ akɛ: “Ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi jɛ Bokã amɛba Yerusalem, amɛbakɛɛ akɛ: ‘Nɛgbɛ Yudafoi lɛ amaŋtsɛ ni afɔ lɛ lɛ yɔɔ? Ejaakɛ wɔna eŋulami lɛ be ni wɔyɔɔ Bokã lɛ, ni wɔba koni wɔbakoto lɛ.’”​—Mateo 2:1, 2.

  • Maŋtsɛ Herode, ji mɔ klɛŋklɛŋ ni tsɔɔ ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi lɛ gbɛ kɛtee Betlehem, shi jeee “ŋulami” lɛ. Be ni Herode nu akɛ afɔ mɔ ko ni baaye enajiaŋ akɛ “Yudafoi lɛ amaŋtsɛ” lɛ, etao koni atsɔɔ lɛ he ni abaafɔ Kristo ni awo ehe shi lɛ yɛ.

    No sɛɛ dani ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi lɛ tee Betlehem. Biblia lɛ kɛɛ akɛ: “Be ni amɛnu maŋtsɛ lɛ wiemɔ lɛ, amɛyi mli amɛtee, ni naa! ŋulami lɛ ni amɛna be ni amɛyɔɔ Bokã lɛ nyiɛ amɛhiɛ aahu kɛyashi eyadamɔ he ni gbekɛ lɛ yɔɔ lɛ yiteŋ.”​—Mateo 2:9.

  • Be ni mɛi lɛ na “ŋulami” lɛ sɛɛ lɛ, Yesu wala yaje oshãra mli ni agbe gbekɛbii ni efeko nɔ ko. Be ni ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi lɛ shi Betlehem lɛ, Nyɔŋmɔ bɔ amɛ kɔkɔ akɛ amɛkaku amɛsɛɛ kɛtee Herode ŋɔɔ dɔŋŋ.​—Mateo 2:12.

Te Herode fee enii ehã tɛŋŋ? Biblia lɛ kɛɛ: “Be ni Herode na akɛ ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi lɛ elaka lɛ lɛ, emli wo la waa, ni etsu kɛtee ni ehã ayagbe gbekɛbii hii fɛɛ ni yɔɔ Betlehem kɛ ehewɔ kpokpai lɛ fɛɛ anɔ lɛ, mɛi ni eye afii enyɔ kɛ mɛi ni yeko nakai lɛ yɛ be ni ebi ŋulamiiaŋkwɛlɔi lɛ fitsofitso ni amɛtsɔɔ lɛ lɛ naa.” (Mateo 2:16) Nyɔŋmɔ hãŋ afee nɔ fɔŋ ni tamɔ nɛkɛ kɔkɔɔkɔ.​—Hiob 34:10.
