Caspar and the other two are considered saints by the Catholic Church.The name Caspar or Casper is derived from Gaspar which in turn is from an ancient Chaldean word, "Gizbar", which according to Strong's Concordance means "treasurer".Some consider Caspar to be King Gondophares (AD 21 – c. Others consider him to have come from the southern parts of India where, according to tradition, Thomas the Apostle visited decades later.
In fact, the modern Hebrew word for "treasurer" is still "Gizbar". The transition from "Gizbar" to "Caspar" and "Kaspar" can thus be summarized as: Gizbar Who the magi were is not specified in the Bible; there are only traditions.
The phrase hic rex caspar habitavit (here lived King Caspar) is inscribed over the Golden Chersonese (Malay Peninsula) on the mappemonde of Andreas Walsperger made in Constance around 1448.
Whether it was a latter day king who took the name of Caspar is also not known.
The Magi are now not considered by some to have been kings.
The reference to "kings" is believed to have originated due to the reference in Psalms "The kings of Tharsis and the islands shall offer presents; the kings of the Arabians and of Saba shall bring him gifts: and all the kings of the earth shall adore him" Psalm .
Caspar is traditionally portrayed as a young, beardless man who brought frankincense to the Child Jesus.
