Were the magi Zoroastrian priests?
I’m afraid I gave away my copy of Raymond Brown’s magisterial study of the nativity narratives and thus cannot check it to see what he has to say about the question. Sorry. Perhaps one of our readers can answer your question.
My dad’s side of the family is Zoroastrian. He claims they were. A magus is a Zoroastrian priest.
