Sunday December 6, 2020 | Prophets Told About Jesus’ Birth

God’s plan to save people from sin and death was not a secret plan. God used the prophets to give hope to His people. They said God would send a Messiah—born into the world as a baby—to live the perfect life people fail to live and die the guilty death we deserve.

This Week’s Lesson – Prophets Told About Jesus’ Birth, Isaiah 7911Micah 5

  • Session Title: Prophets Told About Jesus’ Birth
  • Bible Passage: Isaiah 7911Micah 5
  • Story Point: Everything God said about Jesus’ birth came true.
  • Key Passage: Galatians 4:4-5
  • Big Picture Question: Why was Jesus born? Jesus was born to rescue us from sin.

Long before Jesus was born, some of God’s prophets told people that Jesus would come. The prophets’ words are written in the Old Testament. Two of the men who told about Jesus’ birth were the prophet Isaiah and the prophet Micah. Isaiah the prophet lived hundreds of years before Jesus was born on earth. The first message about Jesus was about who Jesus’ mother would
be and who Jesus would be. Isaiah said, “The Lord Himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive, have a son, and name him Immanuel.” Isaiah said that God would choose a woman
who was not yet married, and she would be Jesus’ mother. He said too that one of Jesus’ names would be Immanuel, which means “God with us.” Some time later, Isaiah talked
about Jesus again. He said, “A child will be born for us, a son will be given to us, and the government will be on His shoulders. He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of peace.” Even more names for Jesus! All these names tell us who Jesus is and the great things He would do. Jesus was coming to earth to help people and protect people. Jesus would be a king who cares about His people, and He would bring peace to the whole world. Isaiah’s third message was about Jesus’ family and His power. Isaiah said that Jesus would be part of Jesse’s family. Jesse was King David’s father. Isaiah said that God’s Spirit would be with Jesus, and Jesus would be wise and strong. Jesus would do the right thing, and He would be a fair
ruler. Finally, the prophet Micah told about where Jesus would be born. Micah said that Jesus would be born in a town called Bethlehem. Micah also said that Jesus would be ruler over Israel. Hundreds of years later, everything the prophets Isaiah and Micah said about Jesus came true.
