What are Frankincense and Myrrh ?

The Magi went searching for the newborn King Jesus, to worship Him and to give Him gifts. They brought the best that they had, gold, frankincense and myrrh. They were precious gifts, worthy of a King. We know about gold, but what are frankincense and myrrh?


Another of the gifts of the Magi, was myrrh.

Frankincense was highly regarded and expensive, making it a gift worthy of a King
It could be that the gift of Myrrh at Jesus' birth was to symbolize His death or it may have been simply another precious gift for the King.
