Manage episode 349471381 series 3090947
The word “advent” means arrival or coming, referring to the coming of Jesus to be born as a baby.
Traditionally, we celebrate it by lighting candles, reading devotions, and preparing our hearts for Christmas. That’s all wonderful, but I there’s much more to the totality of Advent—when we look a little more closely at it—we find that the coming of Jesus, to save and dwell with his people, expands out both backwards and forwards from the beginning of time until the end of time.
That’s what this lesson is about—Seven Miraculous Preparations for Jesus' Birth and Beyond that took, not 5 weeks, but thousands of years and that all came together in the birth of Jesus that happened, as the Bible says in “the fullness of time” (Gal. 4:4).
It’s a fascinating lesson where we look at the history of the Jewish people and how God used their scattering throughout the world, the development of the Old Testament, of the Greek language, the Roman Roads and peace to prepare our world for Jesus.
From looking at how did all these things we see how we can trust Him to care for us now and forever.
