After the Old Testament stories about Magicians, we find scattered bits of information about the Magi or Wise Men of the East. These men lived in Egypt, Babylonia, Persia, and India. It seems that these men had gained more education than the masses of the people and consequently were admired for their knowledge. They were eager
for even more esteem from their inferiors and so developed the Art of mystifying the people and making it seem that they had supernatural powers. They gained great influence as a result of their Mystic Art.
In the New Testament Simon Magus is mentioned as a Magician. He is said to have bewitched the people. Some of his wonderful feats were to make himself invisible and to free himself from bonds and chains.
