This past week we had the pleasure to study and reflect on Isaiah 7:14 (below). This verse speaks very clearly to the coming messiah, which is what we celebrate this time of year with the holiday “Christmas.”
I hope that you were able to give this verse some thought. If so, what did you learn? What stood out to you about this passage? Why is it significant that his name is called Immanuel?
Isaiah 7:14 (ESV)
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Take a few moments to reflect on this verse, then spend some time sharing your observations in the comments. I look forward to discussing this with you!
Stop by tomorrow for another verse from the Old Testament that prophesied the coming Messiah.
