Our Christmas theme this year - fulfilling Old Testament prophecies
In the midst of winter when darkness falls quickly, we wait for lighter days of summer. Yet in summer many people wait for the celebration of Christmas. As human beings we are used to waiting for things all the time.
For thousands of years Israel waited for her Messiah with each successive prophet who came along speaking about what the messiah would do and who he would be. You would think with knowing all the prophecies it would have been quite easy to recognise Jesus. However that did not happen, most people missed who he really was.
With the benefit of hindsight we are going to look at how Old Testament Prophecies are fulfilled in the person of Jesus. By the time Christmas day comes those who listen to the services should have a deeper appreciation of who Jesus is.
