On the day before Christmas, we talk about the birth of Jesus.
Few people don’t know who Jesus is, and most people understand that Christmas is a story that revolves about the birth of the Messiah.
But who was Jesus exactly? Who was he before he came to earth to save the world.
The answers to that question have a dramatic impact on one’s understanding of Christmas.
“A voice of one calling: ‘In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be raised up every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
Isaiah 40:3-5 (NIV)
