The God Who Became Human
What do old and new expectations have in common? At the end of the year, we often look back and consider the expectations we had for the year and the realisation of how the year actually turned out. On Christmas morning, we consider the old expectations of the coming Messiah (Isaiah 9:6-7) and the realisation of Messiah after He came (Philippians 2:5-11). Join us as we discover what they have in common.
Before Jesus was born, the Angel told Mary that one of His names would be Emmanuel, which means “God with us”. But why was Jesus called this and what exactly does it mean? Where the people in Jesus’ day expecting a saviour and Messiah who was God Himself? Was this something new or something that had always been planned? Join us as we trace this theme of “God with us” through the Bible in order to better understand Jesus.
