Epiphany


Epiphany specifies the appearance of a deity in a particular place as God such as the burning bush as witnessed by Moses. It also signifies a moment of divine revelation. In Christianity, the feast of Epiphany commemorates the visit of the Wise Men to Bethlehem, celebrated January 6th in the Roman Catholic Church; the baptism of Jesus; and Jesus' miracle at Cana of changing water to wine. A.G.H.
