Why Christmas?

 

Isaiah 9:1-2

v.1 Nevertheless

          (8:21-22 Distressed and hungry…)

       there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress

     -speaks of “In the past” and “In the future”

          In the past- he humbled the land of Zebulun and Naphtali

          In the future- he will honor Galilee of the Gentiles

      *what does this mean?

 

Why Christmas?

The primary message of Christmas

     -where there is only hopelessness, there is now hope

     9:6 For to us a child is born…

1- because of the great darkness in the land

2- Christmas started here- Nazareth, Galilee, darkness
