MYRRH comes from a stiff-branched thorny tree, which bears white flowers and a plum-sized fruit. In the Bible, it was used in the anointing oil of the Tabernacle, and in embalming the dead. During that time, it was also used as a spice or a medicine.

About this verse
From the New King James Version. As the wise men worshipped the baby Jesus they presented Him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Just as myrrh is associated with the birth of the Christ, so is it also associated with His death. When Joseph of Arimathea gained permission from Pilate to take the body of Jesus from the cross and bury Him in Joseph’s new garden tomb, Nicodemus also wanted to share a love gift. He brought a generous supply of spices featuring myrrh to use in embalming Jesus’ Body.
