The author writes when people understood the world to be under the control of angels. This will not be the case in the era to come.

Matthew 2:13-23

Wise men from the East have visited Jesus and Mary. They have offered Jesus gifts. Herod has asked them to return to him so that he may learn where the child is, but they have returned to their own country by another road.
