Isaiah is the longest prophetic work in the Old Testament. He condemns the externalism of the people, but he also proclaims a message of hope. Jesus is found in many beautiful pictures in Isaiah. Our summary verse is from Isaiah 9:6: “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” – (NKJV) Why this Christmas text? Because Isaiah points to the promised Child Who fulfills God’s promises and the One who takes us from the Garden of Eden to Garden of Gethsemane.
