Going Deeper

Read Isaiah 9:1-6.

Speaking in the eighth century B.C., Isaiah offered hope and a promise of God’s provision to a people who were scared and turning to neighboring countries for safety and protection. While the timing of the arrival of the Prince of Peace may not have been what Isaiah and the people of Judah expected, the Lord was faithful in fulfilling his promise.

Isaiah offers four titles for Jesus:

Wonder-Counselor

God-Hero

Father-Forever

Prince of Peace.
