A song-filled Advent & Christmas!
Our Advent sermon series The Songs of Christmas, takes a look at the biblical songs in the story of Jesus’ birth. A lot of Scripture passages are the words of songs sung by prophets, kings, messengers, and more, but we don’t recognize them that way – they don’t read or look like songs we know. That may be true, but they are songs just the same and there are songs that mark the important moments in the story of Jesus’ birth found in the Gospel of Luke. Exploring these biblical songs will only add to our musical emphasis during the Season of Advent.

Isaiah 9:6 pronounces four titles for the coming Messiah: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Brueggemann, one of our most admired Old Testament scholars, reconstructs the first-century Jewish expectations for a deliverer, then evaluates how Jesus did and did not fulfill them.
