Today’s meditation comes from Isaiah 7:14 but we bounce around scripture quite a bit. Here are a few of the verses we address:
Isaiah 7:14 is repeated Matt 1:23
Jesus would be preceded by a forerunner (John the Baptist): Malachi 3:1
He will come from Bethlehem: Micah 5:2 (repeated Matt 2:1)
He will be from Abraham (Genesis 12:3)
He will be of the line of David: Isaiah 9:6-7 (hence the geneologies)
He will bring a new covenant: Jeremiah 31:31
