The Nature of Jesus Our Messiah
Advent is a season of waiting—waiting to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ our Savior and waiting with anticipation for his return. During this season, Christians around the world prepare their hearts to celebrate Jesus’ birth by remembering the biblical promises that foretold the Messiah’s coming. We return to these passages to remember both what those promises meant to the Israelites and what they mean for us today. One of those promises is found in Isaiah 9:6: “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” These four titles found in this passage reflect both the deep needs of God’s people and how the Messiah’s coming will fulfill those needs. Join us for this Groundwork series as we reflect on Isaiah 9:6 and examine additional New Testament scripture references that help us more fully understand the meaning of each title and the nature of Jesus Christ, our Messiah. Together, we’ll also discuss how these titles impact the way we live as disciples of Jesus today.
