Our series for the Advent/Christmas Season this year is called, Christmas before Christ. That might sound a little odd at first, how was there Christmas before Jesus since it’s the celebration of his birth? But the truth is that the prophets of the OT, most notably Isaiah, spoke about a day when the Messiah would be born, they spoke about Christmas long before Christ had come. So, this year we are going to look at Christmas from their perspective to some degree. As we do, we will find that there is a lot we can learn about Christmas from these words written hundreds of years before Jesus was born.
