a quick recap

For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Jesus pre-existed in eternity past within the Trinity as fully God • This is when the plan for the redemption of mankind is prearranged and set forth (Acts 2:22-24)

Jesus participates in creation and continues ruling as God

• Adam and Eve disobey God and sin is brought into creation which results in creation being cursed. • God lays out the terms of the curse, but also declares what is called the First Gospel. He declares that a woman would bear a child and that Satan would “strike his heel”, but that eventually that offspring would “crush his head”, or defeat satan. (Genesis 3:14-19)

−− Genesis 3:14-15 The Lord God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and above all beasts of the field; on your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspringt and her offspring; he shall crush your head, and you shall bruise his heel."

Jesus' coming is foretold throughout the Old Testament

• God unfolded the foretelling and foreshadowing of the coming of this offspring, who was referred to as the Messiah or Immanuel which means “God with us”.

Humility

The angel

Jesus stepped down off his throne in Heaven to take on a physical body and walk in a world which He had created and we had ruined with sin. Not only did he become flesh, but he took the position as a servant. (Philippians 2:6-7)

The angel Gabriel comes to Mary while she is engaged to Joseph and gives her the good news (Luke 1:26-38)

The census

A decree is put out that a census was to be taken and that everyone was to return to the hometown of their ancestors to register. Joseph was a descendant of David whose hometown was Bethlehem. This was in accordance of God’s plan that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. (Luke 2:1-7, Micah 5:2)

Obedience

Jesus submitted his life to God the Father and ultimately carried out the plan for redemption on the cross (Philippians 2:8-11)

The shepherds

An angel appeared to some shepherds near Bethlehem and let them know that the Messiah had been born and that they could find Him in a manger wrapped in cloth. The shepherds went and saw Jesus and then went and proclaimed who he was to the city. (Luke 2:8-20)

The Magi

Some Magi from the East saw the star that led them to Jerusalem where they asked King Herod where the newborn king of the Jews was. Because he wanted to kill Jesus, Herod sent the magi to find him and report back to him where he was. The star guided them to Bethlehem where they found and worshipped Jesus. (Matthew 2:1-11)

For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his

Philippians 2:5-11 (ESV)

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.

5

And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 8

The massacre

The Lord warned the Magi in a dream about Herod’s intentions and they did not report back to him. As a result, Herod had all the male children 2 years and younger in Bethlehem killed. After being warned by an angel, Mary and Joseph go stay in Egypt for a while to stay safe, then when Herod dies the eventually settle in Nazareth. (Matthew 2:13-23)
