Family Quest: The Hope – The Story of God’s Promise (Lesson 13)
LESSON 13: THE PROMISED ONE, PART 1
The events associated with the birth of Jesus fulfilled numerous Old Testament prophecies given centuries before the events they described. Let’s take a look at some of these ancient proclamations.
Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” (Matthew 1:23)
In reference to the birth of Jesus, Matthew cited a specific prophecy from Isaiah made more than 700 years earlier.
Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. (Isaiah 7:14)
Just as foretold, the virgin (Mary) indeed did conceive (Matthew 1:21) and bore a Son who is called Immanuel. This amazing event demonstrates God’s infinite knowledge and power. He is capable of foretelling the future with perfect precision, and He has the power to bring His prophecies to pass,even if t hat means a virgin would need to conceive and bear a Son.Download Lesson 13
