Read: Isaiah 9:6-7
When a friend or family member has a baby, oftentimes the proud parents will send out a birth announcement right after the birth to invite friends to join the celebration. The birth announcement often includes a picture of the baby and relevant information about the new life that has begun (height, weight, birthday, parents, etc.). 700 years before Jesus was born, the prophet Isaiah delivered a “pre-birth” announcement concerning Jesus. He foretold a prophetic picture of Jesus and described various aspects of the New Life He would deliver.
Question of the day: What do you learn about Jesus and His life by reading Isaiah’s announcement?
