Hope Is Born
Topic: Christmas Passage: Matthew 1:22–1:23
We begin the Christmas Unwrapped series this week focusing on Matthew 1:22 and 23. Ryan Johnston teaches from the text that there are two main points in this portion of scripture: That Jesus is the Fulfillment of God's prophecy and Mission, and that he is the savior that God promised from Old Testament times. We no longer need to worry about sacrifices or whether our past sins are forgiven - Jesus was born and lived among us to fulfill God's prophecy of a savior whose purpose is to deliver us from the punishment we deserve. Is this the year you unwrap the gift of Christ and accept him as your savior?
