The Beloved Bible Scene That the U.S. Postal Service Just Unveiled on One of Its New Holiday Stamps


"Guiding them is a large, dazzling star shining in the sky."

The U.S. Postal Service has unveiled one of its new 2014 Christmas-themed forever stamps — an image that features a biblical scene that is ingrained in the traditional story of Jesus Christ's birth.

The Christmas Magi Limited Edition Forever stamp, which was released on Wednesday, features the three Magi riding on camels and following a bright star as they make their way to visit the Christian savior. The word "Christmas" is displayed in the lower lefthand corner, as USA Today reported.

"The stamp art illustrates the traditional tale of the Magi, who came bearing gifts for Jesus. The three regal figures sit atop a trio of bedecked and harnessed camels, the animals almost at the summit of a small hill," reads the stamp's official description. "Guiding them is a large, dazzling star shining in the sky … The star, located in the upper left-hand corner of the picture, is a brilliant white."

The Christmas Magi stamp isn't the only holiday-themed design to be unveiled this year, as a new Rudolf-inspired option was also newly added to the postal service's website — and other more secular designs are available as well, including stamps featuring snowmen and wreaths.

Other holidays like Kwanzaa and Hanukkah are also represented.

The nativity-themed stamp is only the latest Christ-centered emblem to come from the U.S. Postal Service. Here are two of the other options that are currently on the market:
