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?
