What is Epiphany?

Christmas is over, the new year begun.  The church celebrates Epiphany near the start of January, but what exactly is Epiphany?  We use the word as a description of some personal revelation that we experienced, a great revealing of something life changing.  Epiphany in the church celebrates the visit of the wise men, when the baby Christ was revealed to them and King Herod as the future Saviour and King.  On Epiphany we also focus on Christ’s baptism, as the boy from Nazareth is revealed as God’s own Son.  Watch this video from Concordia Publishing House to learn more about Epiphany:
