Why Christmas?  III

 

Isaiah 11:1

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?
