What Child is This?



What Child is This?



Luke 2:21-38, Pastor Joe Friman
Message delivered December 22nd, 2013 during the morning services.

Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Christ. But what is it about this child that was born over 2,000 years ago that gives us cause for celebration still today? In our Scripture this morning, we'll look at the identity of Jesus and see why He is still the reason for the celebration of the season!

  • Jesus is our brother. (vs. 21-24)
    • He was circumcised on the eighth day.
    • He was dedicated to the Lord.
  • Jesus is our Savior. (vs. 25-38)
    • He is Israel's consolation.
    • He is the Lord's Messiah.
    • He is man's Salvation.
      • ...for all people.
