    The Magi come from a land called Shir," located in the extreme east of the world, at the shore of the Great Ocean." Landau suggests that could be China.

    The text also names 12 Magi, not three, while other parts refer to "a group the size of a small army" that traveled to Bethlehem.

    As far as the star, the book suggests that it first appeared as a star then turned into a human form or "star child" who told them to go to Bethlehem.
