Isaiah: The Real Christmas Tree (A Stump)

December 19, 2021 Speaker: Jerry Witham Series: Isaiah: Hope

Topic: Advent Passage: Isaiah 11:1–10

Today we continue in the season of Advent with looking at Isaiah 11. As we do we see that Isaiah did not have a Christmas tree, but a stump with a single shoot growing from it.  That is a real Christmas tree according to Isaiah, but why?  It is a picture of the promised Messiah, the Christ, a Savior that will be King.  He is the Eternal Son of God who will come as a child born into the world in the obscure town of Bethlehem.  He is the signal to the world.  A signal of love and hope.  Let us all be drawn to the shoot of Jesse this Christmas.
