It’s the time of the year when we remember the prophecies Jesus fulfilled. A Messiah has been born to a virgin in the town of Bethlehem from the lineage of King David. Yet, it is also the time of the year where we pause to reflect the promises yet to be fulfilled: He is coming again. In today’s episode, Cameron and Dr. J talk through their favorite Christmas movies (and you can let us know if some of these count as Christmas movies or not) before taking a look at the various prophecies in the Bible. How many do you think Jesus fulfilled? What are the odds someone could fulfill all those prophecies? What prophecies remain to be fulfilled? We tackle all these questions and more in this week’s episode.
02:34 — What is your favorite Christmas movie?
05:47 — What’s up with bringing a baby gold, frankincense, and myrrh?
08:24 — Why don’t we hear much about Jesus’ childhood and young adult years? What was going on during that time?
11:37 — Why is the genealogy of Jesus that we find in the gospel so important? And, why are they different between Matthew and Luke?
15:03 — We read in Isaiah 7:14, “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” But, He wasn’t, right? He was named Jesus, so why wasn’t Jesus named Immanuel?
16:51 — So, this name Immanuel: what does it mean that Jesus is God with us? Like, I get how that makes sense when we was born, but what does that mean for us today?
26:03 — How do we wait on the Lord in a way that honors and glorifies Him?
