Why Christmas? III
Go back to the prophet Isaiah, 700 BC
Dramatic contrast to 10:33-34
v.1 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
Symbolism is very important in the Scriptures
What does this mean?
Why Christmas? –
I will bring new life out of what seems hopeless!
“from the stump of Jesse”
1- what is the stump of Jesse?
2- what are his roots?
3- who is the Branch?
4- who are the fruit?
