To us a child is born (Isaiah 9.2-7)

On Sunday I had the privilege of speaking on the throne titles of the Messiah in Isaiah 9. This amazing passage, written 700 years before the coming of Jesus, introduces him as the light who breaks in to the darkness of the world.

In this talk, we consider how Jesus is:

  1. Wonderful Counsellor who brings Divine Wisdom
  2. Mighty God who brings Divine Power
  3. Everlasting Father who brings Divine Love
  4. Prince of Peace who brings Divine Peace

If you’re interested, you can check out the audio or the video (the talk starts at about 54 mins in the livestream). And for more on the title Prince of Peace, you may like this post from last week.

And the piece of art I’ve used on this post and mentioned in the talk was painted by Beverley Jones, specially for this event. Check out her work on Instagram or via her website.

If you found this post helpful or thought-provoking (even if you disagreed with it!) chances are someone else you know may do too. So please take a moment to share it on social media. If you would like to support me further, please consider buying me a coffee via my ko-fi page.
