At Christmas, we don't celebrate the birth of any ordinary child, but a Child who was born to save and to rule. In this study of Isaiah 9, Alistair Begg reminds us that Jesus is Mediator, beloved Son, Redeemer, Creator, and King. When we consider Christ from this perspective, our eyes are drawn from the manger to the cross and the throne, where our living Savior reigns in power.
It is HIStory!
Wonderful Counselor. Mighty God. Everlasting Father. Prince of Peace. These words from the prophecy of Isaiah are familiar to many, but have you taken the time to consider who it is that they describe? In this series of messages from Isaiah 9, Alistair Begg takes us on a journey to the heart of the Christmas narrative. It is not sentimental, irrelevant, or superficial. The incarnation of Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of God’s plans and purposes in redemption. The season of Advent provides us with an opportunity to reflect on the Lord Jesus as all that Isaiah anticipated. He is the light that overcomes darkness, sinless substitute, risen Savior, and reigning King.
