Three Advent Sermon Studies: Isaiah Pictures the Coming Messiah
This series of Advent sermon studies will let the prophet Isaiah speak. Seven centuries before the birth of Christ, Isaiah pictured the coming Messiah for his hearers and readers. The three Isaiah texts chosen for this series picture the Messiah:
1. as a lowly shoot from the stump of Jesse (11:1, 2);
2. as a champion bringing deliverance to God’s people (9:2–7);
3. as a light for the Gentiles (49:5–7).
