Long Expected (Advent Series 2017)
Prophecies like Numbers 24:17 and Zechariah 6:12-13 filled the Jewish people with a hope that God would one day send a Deliverer. The star, the branch, and the scepter became symbols associated with this messianic figure who would fill the roles of Prophet, Priest and King. Prophet: The One who reflects the Light of God’s Word (star). Priest: The One interceding on our behalf and through whom we are grafted in as God’s children (branch). King: The One who will reign over all creation forevermore (scepter). In this Advent (meaning “arrival” or “coming”) study we reflect on the first coming of Jesus, this long expected Messiah, who humbled Himself by entering our world as a little baby, and rejoice that He is our Prophet, Priest and King.
