God’s “only begotten son,” took on mankind’s fallen nature so that His perfect life and sacrificial death would atone for human failure. Born in a barn, Jesus, “the light of the world,” never wrote a book, or led an army, or sought political power! Christ’s hands-on ministry revealed the key to happiness—compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, patience, a forgiving spirit, and above all, love.
“This is what the prophets have written”
Fulfilled at the birth of Jesus
“The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” —which means “God with us.”
“But you, Bethlehem in the land of Judah, are by no means the least among the leaders of Judah, for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people, Israel.”
“A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.”
“Out of Egypt I called my Son.”
“He will be called a Nazarene.”
